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          
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
