Endless conversations.

Did I speak right?
Did I type that offensively?
Should I erase a word?
Fill another in,
add more
or take a few away?

No, I’ll just hit send
and I’ll stop worrying,
is it right
is it offensive
is it the right context?
Will they understand
will they interpret it differently?
Yes they will
because they are not me
and I am not them.

Holding in sentences,
having endless conversations
within the walls of my brain.
Trying to get it right
trying to avoid fault
although the truth is
we are all wrong somewhere
and we are all right
as long as we try to be polite.
If I speak my mind and offend
that’s alright
if you offend me that’s alright
as long as our intent isn’t to hurt
we shall think as we think
and feel as we feel
as long as we don’t physically harm.

Feelings are personal
and they change
and what angers you
doesn’t always anger me
and what saddens me
may not sadden you
and laughter isn’t contagious
because if you laugh
I may not
and when I laugh
you might turn red in the face
because we feel differently
and neither of us shall be sorry
for we are to be who we are.

Thanks for reading.

    1. Thanks. Glad you can relate. The constant search for the right words at the risk of being offensive and eventually you just have to go for it. Be it a poem, a story, even a text to someone. It’s impossible to always say the right things and never offend.
