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  your  new  Horizon  
with  your  feet  upon  the  ground  
~~~

Rex
I thank you for opening my eyes
sometimes when we get hurt we lash out in a not so appropriate way and  i thank you for posting this.

 Love is the life of the soul...
It is the harmony of the universe
