Exit the echo chamber

Tell me your opinion, let me know what you think

I’d like to hear your opposite view-point, I don’t want to sink

Any deeper into the cavern that is an echo chamber for me

I am tired of everyone agreeing with me readily

Because when I seek opinions on the internet

The ones that mirror my own are what I get

And I end up reaching the fallacious conclusion

That my viewpoint is right, without any doubt or confusion..


I grew up in a time of friendly debates

When people would in their spare time congregate

To discuss politics, life and everything under the sun

All members free to voice their various opinions

People had widely divergent views too

That they would express freely before you


I want to discuss life in a meeting live

Where dissenting opinions can thrive

I want to know why others think the way they do

I want to comprehend the opposite point of view

Or discover an outlook unknown to me

And marvel at how different voices can be

Completely valid, and co-exist peacefully


Let me move out of echo chambers and find

Ideas diametrically opposite to stimulate my mind

I have my opinions, my biases they carry

I want those biases to be exposed to me

  1. Sadly, I think the period of friendly debates is gone. All you want is another viewpoint, not a lecture of why what I am thinking is wrong. It is so disheartening to smile, nod and walk away, but that’s what I find myself doing. I don’t want a confrontation.
