Horses pulling carriages wear blinders

to keep them focused on moving forward,

to keep them from being spooked

by things along the side of the path,

to keep them and their passengers safe.


Humans wear blinders

which keep them focused on

their faults,

their shortcomings,

their imperfections,

making them scared to risk living fully.  


One set of blinders serves

a good purpose.


One needs to be removed.  

What’s blinding you?
