Faith in humanity
is like looking one way
on a one-way street.

or perhaps like crossing a two way street while thinking it is only one way?
That’s a good take on it vincenzo
Lovin your words, lady.
Oh yes I agree entirely!
I don’t get it, but I like it.
Thanks for liking it anyway driftersonline
Actually I’m surprised when anyone gets what I write!
The other thing is, I worded this aphorism so that it could carry a couple of meanings.
One meaning could be; when we cross a one way street, and don’t look both ways before crossing – this is faith that some idiot isn’t going to be driving the wrong way and collect us.
The other meaning has spiritual connotations to it – which then links back into the first meaning I mentioned.
But really I aim to write in such a way that may leave space for you to come up with your own meaning – I want the words to be a door way into the reader… I think this should be the way for any art actually
