Why I've stopped

defending myself      
when verbally attacked—          
         
It isn't enough          
to repeat,          
It's not about me personally;          
but, to literally believe          
it's about what they perceive;          
         
and, no matter how hard          
one attempts to disguise an affront          
—after-the-fact—          
it will never be the Truth          
until they accept responsibility      
for their choice          
         
Thus, instead of actions          
contradicting words  
they'll learn only reaction      
begets war

Then all of us          
—as a species—          
just may evolve
