Had a visitor staying tonight
I think we could almost have had a verbal fight.
The conversation we had was about ethical behavior
Well, this is what it boiled down to in essence
How does one draw boundaries around what is ethical and what is not
Surely it is drawn by our experiences and what is taught to us by our lot
So, to me this seems to be a discussion with no fight
Because we are both right
Although it was said to me that I was fighting
I challenged that and said ‘no’
I am just stating what I believe
It’s all around what we perceive.
To be accused of fighting is a shadow on the accuser
I think I am happy to listen and also give my side
All that can happen is to be gracious
To acknowledge that we all must abide.
One can take any stance which has support
For the line of argument we purport
The line of argument is often more a sentiment of ego
‘Listen to me, I am so……………………..”
‘………………Important, and my feelings so true,
I can out debate you’
Yes, you may be able to
But that doesn’t make it true.
I would rather give up discussion
Give in, and agree
Yes, we can both be right,
Knowing that this is just my ploy, I don’t want to play this game. I am not a toy.
