character unfurls
like petals in a flower
uncovered by time

It takes time to completely know a person. It takes some for most character traits to truly reveal themselves. Sometimes, we never truly know a person. We only see what they choose to show us. What are your thoughts on this?

This post was written in response to Eugi’s Weekly prompt for this week – Petals. The challenge is to go where the prompt leads you and publish a post on your own blog that responds to the given word or image prompt.

  1. Mmmm. Yes, I do think this is true, Shweta. We can crate a context with someone of safety and trust, yet it is always up to them to show us who they really are, if they choose to do so. A lovely reflective poem, my friend. ❤️🤗

  2. I love this. So true, you cannot truly know a person especially because you also can’t truly know yourself. There is always so much to know about yourself so imagine the horizons of knowing someone else.

  3. “We only see what they choose to show us.” That’s so true. And we only see what we want to see. Sometimes we insist on what we choose to see despite all evidence to the contrary.
