It occurred to me today that when dealing with disagreements of emotion, finance,politics and religion, that I could calmly state my humble opinion on the subject, and offer an intelligent,rational basis for the thought behind it.
OR, I could simply walk away, leaving my antagonist to their own egg-faced ruminations..
Today, it was such a case with a woman I have never met, who posted a possessive and jealous statement on a friend’s social network. My bones yelled out to say……….ah,but I chose instead to walk away.
From the spaces inside my head…
Are you so blind that the view of one’s soul is nought?
It is the core of a man, not the shell.
What do you seek of another; the soft shell that is easily broken,
or the nutriment that lies within?
It goes both ways you know. You reject the chocolate frosting, never knowing that your favourite cake lies within; and conversely, so much value is placed on the sweet, fragrant envelope, that the true delicacy is tossed aside, without so much as a taste.
Starving and blind. The feast lies before you,beyond the facade.
