Ever Consider the Same for Me?


- discomfort at times 'cause what can you say...


You have strong and deep feelings

For this particular facet of life

And you never hold back from

Sharing them with everyone


I have strong and deep feelings

About that same particular facet

But I always hold back from saying

'Cause I don't want to upset you

Great poem. I have found that the greatest moment of liberation I have ever experienced was when I realized that I had a right NOT to have an opinion about a thing. I could respond—I don’t know about that thing, I have no opinion. Or, I could say, I know about that thing (whatever it may be) and have no opinion. Or I could say, “I’m so pleased that that thing pleases you.”. Without ever having to say anything myself. But of course there are a great many things I do have opinions about. And this poem is one of them—very fine.

Ah, yes, the phenomenon of the opinionated soul who loses all trace of equanimity when confronted with the differing opinions of others. C'est triste.
