The World Through Another's Eyes
By: Eve Estelle

We live on a world unlike any other,
We live on a planet where life abounds;
But though we share this beautiful home,
There's a contrast in views that always astounds.
Where one may see white,
Another sees black.
Where one can take flight,
Another's held back.

It stems from experience,
The way we perceive;
Each act of kindness,
Each time we're deceived,
Every little things shapes our alignments.

Realize that you are not alone on this earth;
You are not the sole holder of opinions,
You are not the only one to have suffered.
Life is easy for none, and the same for none.
Avoid the bitter anger of ignorance, try to understand;
Lend your ears, forget your pride,
Next time you find yourself in the midst of belligerence,
Just take a little time to see the other side.

    2. I subscribed a month ago, but it hasn't been sending me notifications? Does it matter if I subscribed by email instead of joining the site? Does it take you long to write your "impressive" posts?

    3. The biggest difference is just how you receive the notifications. Joining the site via GFC will allow you to see new posts in your Blogger newsfeed, among other things. But you probably won't see them if you don't use Blogger. Email subscriptions, on the other hand, go directly to your email. I've noticed it won't notify you until a day after the item was published—but I don't know why it wouldn't be sending you any notifications at all.

      It shouldn't matter which you use. Not sure why email isn't working for you, but maybe try resubscribing. See if that helps.

      And it depends.This poem, for example, took me maybe two days. Some of them can take up to a week or more, if I don't know exactly where I'm going with the post (and I often don't)!

    4. Oh, forgot to add: If you have a Google+ profile or a Facebook account, those are the best ways to receive updates. I update those almost immediately after every new post. :)
