Opinions  in  our  Pockets
~~~~~

Lets  keep  opinions  in  our  pockets
at  the  bottom  out  of  sight
Wrong  conclusions  to  a  problem
seldom  sheds  it  any  light
~
An  altercation  row  or  ruckus
when too  hasty  we  decide
Perhaps  can  be  avoided
once  we  see  the  other  side
~
As  we  wander  on  our  journey
try  to  look  beyond  ourselves
Extending  all  the  olive  branch
instead  of  who  to  pelf
~
If  we  try  to  lend  a  helping  hand
with  smile  upon  our  face
Our  deeds  could  root  throughout  the  land
and  save  the  human  race
~
We  can  find  the  best  solutions
ditch  the  ones  we  thought  we  knew
Pull  together  for  the  better
watch  what  other  people  do
~
With  our  friends  around  our  table
and  our  lights  all  burning  bright
We  will  never  trip  and  stumble
past the answer in the night
~
Develop  wisdom  used  with  caution
always  stop  to  look  around
Try  to  greet  our  new  Horizon
with  our  feet  upon  the  ground
~~~



 I'm not ugly!
I'm just visually challenged!

I have to tell you... good projections. Life is what we make of it and we all have personal opinions... and I should repent because sometimes mine get in the way.

Good Projections,
I need that sometimes,
Lucky

Hi Rex...I liked this also. Your message here is sound ~ to give advice carefully  and only when appropriate. I really like that last stanza! Nicely written, Rex!

Rex Allen, Rex Allen...so that's an opinion
in your pocket?  And I thought you were just
glad to see me!

Good Advice from a good friend!  Don't mind
my little joke, please, I am just feeling a
little naughty these days...lol

Thankyou all ... It can really make ones day
when such good people say such kind things
I quite often find myself giving an opinion
when one wasn't asked for
I really need to stop doing this even though I always mean well

Very true and important message. As my sister once said in one of her writings "Why don't we take off our "pettycoats". Made me think of that. The opinions of others perpetuates (or can) such negative feelings. I loved the way you expressed this.
