along the road ~ OPEN DIALOGUE

this or that
here or there
where is
the head ….. all the way
to the toe
the length
and breadth
of the whole matter  ~
you know
all the stuff
between A & B
….. we need to know
what it took
to get from
point A
to point B
don’t we  ~
shouldn’t we
experience
the struggle
the whole process
role it around
in our noggin
~  reflecting on it
~  evaluating it
~  understanding it
to fully learn
about what
had transpired
and how to move forward
along the road
of life together
as HUMANS
without judgement  ~

…..  so why then
the impatient
and intolerant
response to  ~
a certain collective
of INDIVIDUALS
that are on the march
boldly speaking out
about their plight
the discrimination
and injustices
they’ve underwent
as part of a group  ~
interacting with
other groups
that make up
and represent
the overall collective
of
ALL groups
the group of a KIND
a SPIECES
THE HUMAN-KIND  …..

the challenge  ~
how to create
a social environment
where other groups
of INDIVIDUALS
are more willing  ~
able
and receptive
want to walk in
the shoes of another
for a …..while
to better know
understand
and appreciate
the full breath
experienced
by a specific group
of INDIVIDUALS
while interacting
with other groups
of individuals

easier said than done
for us HUMANS as INDIVIDUALS
on all sides of the issue
to be able to
transition
and transform our thoughts
from socially embedded
ways of going
about thinking
and value-judgments
based on
and reinforced
by the naturally evolving
social blinders
of group labels
like
race
skin color
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture
belief
or social status
for us HUMANS as INDIVIDUALS
We the People
of planet earth
through wisdom
to arrive at the point
of acceptance
for the differences in others
as INDIVIDUALS
a part of a specific group
and then
find it beneficial to focus
more on supporting
and building upon
the commonality
between
each and every human
especially
as far as
INDIVIDUAL
HUMAN rights
where the right of choice
liberty  ~  freedom
equality
justice
and prosperity
becomes the norm
for everyone
each INDIVIDUAL
regardless the group

for such a happening
to occur
for us HUMANS
as INDIVIDUALS
or as INDIVIDUALS
a part of a group(s)
who want to create
social change  ~
WE
need to find ways
through the communicative
process
that are
conducive to ALL
forms of communication
that will
initiate
the cooperative spirit  ~
learning
and development
between all parties involved
that is Non-violent
in its Direct Action
a process that is pro-human
peaceful
and healing in essence

forms of communication
LIKE
OPEN
DIALOGUE  ~
a way of bringing
back to light
out of the darkness
all hidden
and suppressed
predispositions
and inhibitions
that cause
the dis-ease
of societal ills  ~
where WE can
collectively
group to group
or person to person
confront
air out
and release
all pain
sorrow
and regrets
where all sides involved
can successfully
let go
get past
and move on …..
intelligently  ~
progressively  ~
transitioning
as We the People
along the road
of enlightenment
and human
transformation
as INDIVIDUALS
of a KIND
a SPIECES
THE HUMAN-KIND

peace out
