Let Me Explain ..........

I'm sure you might misunderstand but
only if you want it that way
where is it written I must
be like you.........
Conformiity is the answer .....
though you never say it aloud.
You are so intellectual........
I envy the liberals
so self righteous
and politically correct.......
your openmindedness is
so engaging .......
I might convert......
No .......no I don't think so
I'll just crawl back into my
close minded ways
and go on as before.......
You're ways are not  so enlightening....

I love open mindedness, but like all things there must be a yin to the yang to distinguish it.

It is refreshing to think outside the box than to conform to what others think you should be like. Great poem, I loved reading it. Thanks!

I liked it, too. Not so enlightening after all, yes, people need to think for themselves. We each have a unique point of view, a unique flavor of mind.

Patricia , I consider myself open minded and conservative, progressive and at times liberal , but I don't like being told what I am . The point being we are all one and the same , why do we love to be so devisive. With a smile like yours you must be open minded! LOL. Closed minded people are unsmiling! :-] thanks for sharing.

B Malin. Thank you , I think thats just it ,so many people complicate things so much. In politics, in religion , I really dislike being told what to think. And I really believe if I need to understand something....I break it down to its simplest elements. Boom ,there it is! Be well! :-}
