Poem -

KEEP YOURSELF REAL

KEEP YOURSELF REAL

I so hate conflict, A peaceable person am I 
Why do people insist on,taking an eye for an eye
To be the better person and ignore what you surmise
surly a feeling of harmony, and well being, makes you feel better inside
 
Freedom of speech, yes great! I am all for that
just discuss it though, not rant, demean have a spat
People throw dummies out of their prams, these days on a whim 
come on people the way this world is, we must unite! its sink or swim

Friendly banter not anger, is the only way to go
try not to make irate personal references, it puts your ignorance on show
I do know we all get angry ,but breathe, tomorrow is another day
and be honest did it feel better, being nasty in anger, putting it on display

So lets all play nice, there is no difference between us,we are all the same
and at the end of the day,can you tell me what did you gain? 
I have respect for everyone, no matter race color religion,after all, we all feel
just ignore, ignorance, personal slanging matches,just keep yourself real

A truly powerful and noble rationale DEBS!!.........and like BLANK said.......I am 100% behind the ideology........but inside each and every one us (no exceptions) ,,, there exists good and bad......otherwise there would no humanity seeking answers to its own existence.......men are flawed...,.no yet perfect as of yet........but we do have tangible evidence ~the world over.......tnat drive  us forward........FAITH!!.......each of us has had an experience or a taste of that purity.........that spirit inside of us........different people call it different thiNgz........but it's ALL the same thing..........FAITH!!......,cannot be destroyed.......and so YES we Do fight.......for tne right to meet our creator..........A truly inspiring write DEBS!!......thanx for setting my mind on fire sweet poetess!!......you're awesome!!........PINNED!!.......talk hard......you've got the stuff!!........bravo.......T xo    ♥

Hi Tony I love this comment you are so wise 
Yes there is good and bad in us all I agree 
and I think life itself is a battle of sorts. to focus 
and to have faith in goodness leads us i think to be better people 
and live a better life
and when we do eventually meet our creator we can feel we
tried to be a good person  who only wanted peace and harmony
even though  sometimes life throws curve balls
Give me a person to turn the other cheek who is humble, than one who
who creates discord 
Thank you my friend for your comments always a pleasure
to see them 
Love n hugs Debs xo

Hi Debs...I swear you and I must have been cut from the same cloth....We are both empathetic peacemakers, who are sensitive and want only good....(both love the rocker men type too) and want to be respected....You are my sister!  Lol  I cannot stand to see people belittle others and just be outright mean and controlling.....We all have have opinions and convictions....and that is no reason to put down others we do not agree with....just agree to disagree and with love show why we believe the way we do....Great theme to show awareness of respect for all.....Much love and respect for this..xox Cherie

Hi  Dear friend, I love you said, we could be cut from the same 
cloth A saying my grandmother said often:-)
We are very much alike, empathetic and yes I definatly like the rocker type haha
 Yay sisters lol
My friends tell me I can be too soft, but I am not really I have
got opposing opinions on a variety of topics I will voice them
sensibly and calmly but I would walk away, agree to disagree as you say 
than let it get out of hand, I would say to come back when you have 
calmed down and we can talk about it rationally and without anger
Thank you for your comments you always know the heart of my writes 
Love n hugs Debs xox

its annoying now I swear I am never going to comment on any post that has conflict and insults, Poetry is about reading and relaxing the mind, there is so much things we can write about seriously my tiny brain begins to hurt when I have to come across politics, war etc...yep its there , I know its going to be that way until the end of time...

if you have the money go feed the poor, go save a life....do something instead of bumping your gums about it...politicians don't care, so don't  depend on them to solve anything...my God  this is common knowledge, its been that way forever...

!!!ask yourself how many times you actually held a battered child in your arms?

how many times you drive past homes and communities and saw children naked and hungry and stopped to give them something to eat...?

do some volunteer work and just shot up about it already....!!

Deborah please know I spoke in general... and again I admire you for posting this...

Hi Merrill I hear you  and agree with you 
So much suffering in this world as it is, without having anger 
over opposing opinions, it achieves nothing 
only bad feelings 
Thank you for your comments always appreciated 
Warmest wishes Debs

Hi Debs...A compeling write here....There are things I love to do but I find myself not doing them and there are things I hate to do but find myself doing...It's a struggle with myself and I guess everybody goes through the same struggle...like Tony said, we all have our good and bad sides...The world would be a beautiful place if we'd all keep ourselves real...Thanks for sharing...Lots of love
