Offended

Offended 
is ignorance
a lack of understanding
silence 
is not for everyone

humans speak
and do things 
different than you
or your faction
true 
or untrue
or stretch truth

what's the worry?
stressing 
over someone else's beliefs 
takes you away 
from your own routine

offended 
is a waste of energy
needed for nothing
causing dangerous sparks
within one's mind
one's heart
one's soul
becomes contaminated
with preoccupations

vengeance breeds furious
often unexpected actions
of ill-will occur 
or changes for the worse 
creep 
in the shadows of good
growing
taking over
"spiritual kudzoo"
none could tame

extinguish your dealings
with petty rage
of another imperfect being's mouth
cancer vanishes easier
with early detection
MOVE ON!
or at least learn
from your polar opposite

    I agree that being offended wastes time and energy. Such a well written expression of this sentiment. Domo.

    I enjoyed your poem it holds much truth, quiet often we get offended because of the way we perceive, always leave space for clarification. If not, do what Jesus did in the bible, where he wasn't welcome he just shook the sand off his sandals, and moved on. Hope I didn't get too biblical, love and light, vie
