Understanding: The Peace Weapon

Just something that hit me a moment ago.

I think understanding frightens you,

Because I'm not as easy to hate.

When I say I understand you,

It is not to unsettle,

And I do not patronise.

I say it merely because I know,

That different opinions exist,

And everyone is entitled to their own.

It may not be something you like,

And I may not like your opinion,

But the beauty is we don't have to.

We are separate individuals,

And yes we are different,

But that doesn't mean that one differing opinion,

Should start a war of words.

The End
