There are times when I do not write.
There are times when I fight for the right.
There are times when I just sit and pray.
There are times when I am too tired to fight.
So, forgive me, if you pass my way
When you observe that I am not full of might.

Do not take this as a sign of weakness.
Do not fill me with your scorn.
Just know that finally, I am so glad to be born.
I am glad I know of freedom.
I am glad I know of grace.
So, please, if you must
Be told very clear….
Do not bring your garbage near.
I did not “right” today.
However, if I am forced to
I will send all your venom back to you.
So be careful on whom you spew.
I still can right today.
I just prefer not too.
Blessings to you.
I guess that’s it.
Now you have a choice.
Be kinder, be more pleasant
Be a good neighbour too.
Or all the unkind things you do
Will come rushing back at you.
Take my word
I know it is true.
There is a lot to love about you.
I love your spirit.
I love your voice.
So drop your hatred.
It is your choice.
Please, do not force me out of my shell.
Do not include me in your living hell.
I stand for my beliefs.
I stand for the rights of the wounded and small.
I will not stand for your cruel gossip today.
So in closing
Hear me say…
I did not stand for the “right” today.
But believe me…if you force me to
