GloPoWriMo 2019: 6/30

Today’s prompt asks me to write about the “if’s”


My only desire is to be able to have conversations
With people who don’t share the same opinions as I do
Without them attempting to attack my ideology, my approach
Without the emotion
Without the lies
Just, plain conversation
No anger – just an exchange of information
An understanding of how ideologies practically function
An agreement on disagreement
No violence, no resentment.
I wonder if this will ever be possible
When our country battles with words, more than swords,
And prefixes, and suffixes are shrouded with subliminal messaging
Meant to attack, rather than inform.
One day I’m hopeful of engagement rather than brute disagreement
For it is in ignorance that darkness lies
And it appears that our world is in great need of light.

Let me know what you think!
