So many have opinions
But so few listen.
The attitude is
“Let’s invade their dominion
and embe d them in our tradition.”
We have two ears versus one mouth.
Hence we do well
to pay attention
to the next man’s path,
because there is no one standard of beauty.
Against ignorance, there is not enough wrath.
The biggest problem with this world
is not the nuclear weapon.
Instead, it is the ignorant, closed ear
that doesn’t give a care about love or knowledge.
This is the element that we should fear.
When the mouth functions more than the ear,
tragic things always happen--
like when the whole Islamic religion was the scapegoat
for the 9/11 distraction.
Any open minded person
can clearly see
that there’s a difference
between terrorism and Islam.
It’s just that so many minds are closed,
especially when someone does something
like drop a bomb.
No one likes to be misunderstood.
Yet, it’s common to misinterpret others.
We conclude things about people
based on what we think
instead of getting the facts from the persons themselves.
This was the case with the Salem Witch trials
and why the Nazi Holocaust is entrenched in our history.
The African Slave Trade pertains to this also.
Such ignorance has caused unspeakable misery.
The aftermath of 9/11
told us the truth about ourselves.
Muslims are not the problem.
We just need to open our ears
and listen to people before we criticize.
There are rotten persons in every religion
Some are cheating their flocks out money right now!
You know good and well that this is true .
