Open Mind


Who are you the judge and jury,
to close your mind to one in need?
Your arrogance spawns my fury,
so listen to my words, take heed.

Don't speak from a prejudiced heart,
just look past the end of your nose.
Don't decree when taking no part,
try it once before you oppose.

Avoid misinterpretation.,
Open your ears, hear all that's said.
A little communication,
so not to feel you've been misled.

But above all open your mind,
for without that all is soon lost.
‘Cause you never know what you'll find,
if you're willing to bear the cost.

So I ask you kindly relent,
if not you're the one who will pay.
If for this a friendship is rent,
I mock your morality play.

Well done indeed Chris! I replied to some of your Prose stuff did you see?

Indeed! A closed mind is a curse to all who encounter it.

Well said! But remember to open your heart with your mind.

Very well said Chris...your words speak truth

It is better to be silent and be considered a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

Thank you everybody, and I wish more people would agree!

I feel vindicated!!!!!
Wow, this is great. It is tantamount to arrogance isn't it? (And, I'm sure I've said it before, but can you just float over here on that damn parachute!!!!!????)
