The Choice

 

It’s a choice

A conscious decision

To stand in judgement

Or open a heart

 

Within the iron walls of judgement

Cowardice fuels hatred

Fear consumes tolerance

Righteousness contradicts hope

 

Within the warm walls of a heart

Curiosity fuels understanding

Empathy consumes fear

Acceptance contradicts bigotry

 

Much easier to stand in judgement

Never inconvenienced

Never introspective

Never unguarded

 

Much harder to open a heart

Always challenged

Always vulnerable

Always exposed

 

Bring me the differences

I applaud them although

I may not agree

 

Show me the possibilities

I consider them although

I may choose a different path

 

Let me live within my heart

I welcome the journey although

I may stumble

 

Stretching, growing

Experiencing, learning

This is where I want to live

WordPress Meet and Greet #3 – All Bloggers Welcome

I love this idea!

HarsH ReaLiTy

Well this is the third post I have done like this so far and I have seen some great connections. I’ll keep doing these off and on and I think they provide a great way for “active bloggers” to network.

All bloggers are welcome to use this post as a “Self-Promotion” thread for their blog, projects, causes, writing, books, eBooks, food, fashion, or whatever you are into. You may post links, book covers, or whatever you like and feel free to revisit and leave a new comment as this thread will quickly fill up.

Hopefully some authors, photographers, painters, writers, and bloggers will take the opportunity to push their work. Please keep promotional comments on the posts dedicated for that purpose.

Feel free and re-blog or share this post. Thanks!
