You Say I Say

He wrote down his ideas
So that the whole world could see
He held them with conviction
Creating controversy

There were different opinions
Each person expressed their own
An exchange of ideas
Without casting any stones

I stood on opposite ground
I said I didn't agree
We didn't have to be the same
To remain in harmony

Like voices in a choir
Each one unique sings its part
If all of them were the same
The song would lack so much heart

We agree to disagree
Neither of us play pretend
We don't take it personal
After all we are both friends

    Yes, I worded that wrong! Sometimes when I'm excited my fingers go a lot faster than my brain (my bad).

    Wow again... I can see very clearly what lead up to these thoughts. I'm amazed at how many nails you hit on the head with this one. Having different opinions is way worse a crime than playing pretend... amen! Geez, Rick... (by the way which name do you prefer, Rick or Richard?)... you are quickly filling up my favorites list!

    Rick is good. I think you meant playing pretend is far worse a crime tahn expressing your opinion. Expressing opinions while losing sight of peoples feeling can also be a crime. I think you seem to balance both well.
