MYSTIC POET

“RESPECT AND LOVE!”* a poem. a.k.a.: “Variety Is The Spice Of Life!” Friday: November 2, 2018

“I deeply and completely love-and-respect …

MYSELF!” (I think) is often wrecked,

By-us – when-we do-not quite-see,

That TRUE-RESPECT’s about – BOTH-you-and-me!

To respect another? ALLOW! HOW-THEY-EXPRESS,

To be HONORED! Don’t (pause) IMPRESS,

Your idea (pause) – of-“expression-proper,”

Like a czar – or-a-”crooked cop-per!”

As-long-as-our-expression doesn’t hurt,

Others’ expressions – you needn’t assert,

That – what-they-do-is-”wrong” or-in-need-of-change:

THIS IS RESPECT(FUL): Allow them to arrange,

How-they-express – and conduct their days!

FREE EXPRESSION! Comes in MANY WAY:

Some folks are shy – don’t talk a lot;

Some folks are cautious – and some have sought,

Comfort! in the-written-word –

And some like nature – flying-like-a-bird!

Some like INdoors; some like OUT!

Some-like-to-sing; some-like-to-pout,

But, when-a-person’s-expression is-about CONTROL,

Of others’ expression(s) – this takes a toll!

Especially WHEN – there-are efforts to-“pervert,”

Others’ expressions! For – some-people-will-assert:

That others SHOULD (pause) REALLY (pause) BE:

More-talkative, more-proactive, or more-filled with glee!

To tell another (that) his (her) expression’s wrong,

Takes from them – their-potentially, glorious song,

Which they MIGHT sing, to enrich this place!

Thus! Let’s respect – The Human Race!

So – I DEEPLY AND COMPLETELY LOVE AND RESPECT,

MY EXPRESSION – AND – YOURS TOO! HECK!

IF we can’t-agree – to disagree,

AND STILL LOVE ON!

Well-such-misery –

Life-can-be!

Yet, HOPE’S not “numb:”

RESPECT EXPRESSIONS (pause) and VARIETY-HAS-COME! 🙂 – Yay!
