Never Trust The Flock

Oh yes without a doubt they’ll swarm to your side
Flittering, fluttering a luring chorus they’ll sing on high

“We’re all one, joined by a common grief”
Yes, God yes! Come connect with us
We’re all one, joined by a common belief”

Ah but just once, stray from the collective thought
And feathers turn. It’s a shunning from the flock

Having the strength to push on, no matter who shuns us. That's grace covering our loneliness. Nice poem man"

Yes, a sad but true conundrum we all face in life.

Peace and healing,
Josh

I've just recently had this done to me by a member of our "flock."

A pink flamingo amongst the ducks Dang, I love that visual!!!

It saddens me that this poem struck a chord. It is one I wished more people would find disagreement with than agreement, especially at a place where the common ground of sexual assault should trump all other differences. But that is “pie in the sky” wishing in fact it is the destructive act of SA that most likely fuels much of the division.

It saddens me too brother frown

I think in many ways, we seek reasons to separate ourselves. In this way, we don't have to admit to ourselves, deep inside, just how alike we all are...

But, on the other hand, acceptance is absolutely needed for healing. If we can't find unconditional acceptance here, regardless of orientation or religion, then where can we hope to find any acceptance as survivors???

Division is what makes the battle easy for our enemies ...we still are not One Voice ....
