Our Places (For My Friend Seriouspoet)  

We must all find our places
in this often insane world.
And I for one espouse the thought
of flags of love unfurled.

I truly feel this is a thing
that we must surely choose.
For we all get by together
or as a whole we lose.

There's a lot of evil perpetrated
by those who are sick and sad.
They want to drag us down there
to where we are no longer glad.

No longer happy to be living
in this world so filled with sin.
But I stand in defiance proudly
and I refuse to give in.

I know I must not bend or break
under the lies those people spread.
To allow them to take control
is just like becoming dead.

And I won't be that apathetic
for inside I'm still alive.
So I spread kindness in my wake
as through this world I jive.

And that my friends is my message
so now my poem is all through.
You be kind to me my friend
for you know I'm kind to you!

Michael "Spread Kindness, Peace And Love!" Gallatin

Creative . . .
to the nth, my friend. I do write dark, but never put lies into anything I post. As much as I disliked my mother, there is one thing she drove in my head (physically at times) was to never lie. Yes, we have all lied, but never, ever would I put falsehood inside my poetry. Spotlight!

Kinda curious about why you did the rhyming the way you did.

Thank you so much for writing this poem for me. It is excellent and poignant like always.
I prefer if you refer to me by my real name Masayuki in the future. Because you are a good kind friend. And I want my friends to refer to me by my real name
