Morality (Poetry by GalaxyRat)

Updated on July 10, 2017

GalaxyRat is fond of rats and writing. And dark poetry. She knows that people don't like all these things together... but who cares?

There are so many rights and rules

Leaders say if you don't follow them you are a fool,

Alas, to be a fool is better than to abide by their laws.

If I don't accept those who disagree with me,

In a flash, the media and goverment tell me who I must be,

And that I must accept those who are different.

In an economy where gay marriage is the norm,

I cannot tell my view, lest I be ignored,

or worst yet, I will be ridiculed.

I suppose that DNA tinkering

and my Christian thinking

Do not go together, alas, for I am not immoral.

Morality does not include abortion

Or kidnapping orphans,

Nor does it allow you to be gay or lesbian.

Morality is my view and is the view of many others,

But there will always be another

Who will tell us our views are forever wrong.

      It kinda looks like me, but no, it is not.

      Yah, I like to think of the opportunity of friendship than of becoming enemies. Thanks for commenting!

      Nothing wrong with expressing one's opinion. Although I don't agree with everything you state, I'm sure we have a lot more in common with one another than differences of opinion.

      Yep, I've noticed, ThreeKeys. That's why I write novels (fanasty): to truly escape.

      There are so many people and so called experts increaing the number of rules and forcing them onto us (and Im doing that to myself too) that I feel very upset and just want to walk out. Walk out into another world, place and time. You noticed it too?

      I would say these are my views.
