Nah, nah, nah.
The right of an individual to interpret poetry as they choose belongs to that individual.
Everyone does not interpret the same way
To police a poet is wrong !
Too many rules, is gestapo.
Rules explained down to the letter, should not be necessary.
We are adults, and we know what we are doing.
When we touch that keyboard, or put that
pen to paper, we have something in our hearts that we wish to express.
There are times when
we have had our fill
of the indifference that surrounds us in our personal lives, or
here on DU.
Those fiery emotions
may appear in our work
or on a thread.
It would behoove us all
if we were to read our postings aloud to ourselves, feel it, listen
Ask yourself what is your intention
Is it appropriate?
Will it injure or slander anyone?
If you can lie down at night knowing that nothing you have done, or said, has hurt someone then you have successfully made it through another day
Stop the micro managing let DU heal, let her breathe.
We have had a glitch, a painful glitch to some, let's not ruin the free
spirit of DU by hammering rules and bringing back wrongdoings from the past.
We recover when we have learned, to not back bite our brother or sister
When we leave the past in the past and move forward in change
We don't need to air dirty laundry or point fingers to create change
To progress in life is
to see, where WE have done wrong, it's not to not look at our brothers laundry list of dirty deeds.
Move forward in peace
But the problem with
Moving forward in peace
is that there are those
who only want to
on their Terms
SUCH is LIFE
