A Theist Cure


Always I am accepting of others, but
That does not mean that I am interested, try
Holding your faith as sacred and private, and
Evade the falsehood that different is wrong, and
If you could respect me as you wish to be respected, then
Surely we could be great friends and always get along, so
Thanks for listening and I'll leave this with you.

Cherish the opportunities brought by diversity, and never
Underestimate your right to freedom of religion,
Remembering that others are
Equally entitled to that same self determination.

    evade the falsehood that different is wrong, and
    If you could respect me as you wish to be respected
    Words spoken in a gentle manner, if all of us would follow, all hearts should be at peace. Great pen, thank you for share! (Report) Reply

    Do you keep copies of this in a jar by the door and exchange them for Watchtowers? (Report) Reply

    Tolerance is a great virtue to be practised! Each one is a different individual with individual likes and dislikes! Leave each to each one's private space! Respecting and cherishing diversity is a sure way to foster friendship with everyone! Let our outlook be broader! A sagacious perspective of life! (Report) Reply

    Nice write. Sadly acceptance, respect and humanity have been stolen by fast cars and electronics. Thank you (Report) Reply

    Here here, totally agree Danny - we should all be free believe what we want without imposing such beliefs on others. Each to his own. Great piece of philosophy. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
