All we have is perspective

And not the truth.
A point of view
And not the whole story.
We are a people with a slice
And not the whole cake
A generation in a cultural moment-
We are not exempt from from blind spots.
Human wisdom did not culminate with us
And our icons may be laughable in years to come.
And yet we erect monuments to our own ego
And build empires on our untested confidence.
We may consider ourselves the greatest of all time
Deconstructing norms
And redefining human possibilities
But only time will tell
What echelon of the human story
We will occupy.
