Dogmatic

your view of the world
is so entrenched
that even when
a firmly established truth
presents itself
you deny the undeniable
and say “it’s just
a wrong interpretation”

your blinders have been
on so long
you can’t even believe
what is right beside you

~~

I have no monopoly on the truth. I have my beliefs and convictions, but I know that in some things, I am probably wrong (the trick is trying to figure out which things I am wrong about).  My issue is with those who are so dogmatic in their world view that they won’t even entertain the idea that they might be able to learn something from those with opposing viewpoints.
