In this speech, Chimamanda Adichie confirms the importance of being open and mindful to what perceptions we choose to believe. A single story paints one picture and Life’s big picture is a collage of pictures, stories and purpose. Go beyond a quick conclusion and explore various aspects of the story.
A single story tells a single perspective
Sometimes, told with specific objectives.
Acceptance requires an effort to open each fold
To search for a heartfelt truth that’s bold
It takes courage to be respective
To love fully without being subjective
To categorize or ignore is to be cold
Looking away is choosing to fit a poor mold
Black or white, all lives matter, be respective
Make unconditional love a central objective
Every life has a journey to unfold
Be open to all stories and place no other into a set mold
