Poem: Think and Write

People should think before they write,

but not always write what they think.

While it is wise to share our thoughts,

sometimes it is wiser to refrain and wink.

*

For life is more than one persons will,

a society that promotes the common good.

Diversity demands we accept other opinions,

as people with good common sense should.

*

That does not mean that we must participate,

in acts that violate a moral or religious belief,

Each individual has the right to pray,

to a being that helps alleviate their grief.

*

So, the lesson from this poetic message,

is based on thoughts from this humble man.

You are graciously invited to accept it, reject it,

or start from scratch and form your own plan.
