How many times have I had to concede a point that I did not want to concede, and in doing that action, had peace with the other person? Why can’t people, in general, state what they believe and go on from there? Compromise is always a great finish to any discussion. BUT, the need to be correct, in the mind, is universal. I think of politics and the people that ply that trade and do it so poorly today, in my opinion……..
Differences of Opinion 2015-61
I say I am right, or so I think,
You say you are right, without a blink.
A difference of opinion you say,
On the thought at hand this day.
Discuss religion – I think not – stay away,
It’s a matter of faith anyway.
Life after death, you wonder aloud,
The proof is at the end – head bowed.
Politics as a subject to talk about,
Ends with a thousand ideas, no doubt.
Little and big – exciting and dull,
To you and me, important to all.
Will you concede one point I ask,
If I do so first – it’s not a large task.
Nothing should be all black and white,
Grey shades of opinion would be more right.
If we start with one point, then go to two,
Could a compromise result, if we see it through?
If we can do that, why not the rest,
It would be great if put to the test.
Instead of all the fighting and turmoil,
Sitting down and talking would be just royal.
Maybe it will never happen, the futures hard to see,
But, it’s better than now, you have to agree.
