beyond exceptionalism

what if
we weren’t
our thoughts

what if
we viewed ourselves
as others do

or better yet
as who we are

without judgement
or emphasizing the negative

what if we strived
to be
acceptional
instead of exceptional

what if all the words
meant nothing
and so we stopped using them
to explain our life

and simply lived it

(D James)
