The Rights of Another

We agree to disagree, silently
And that should be enough
But the lines constrict
These opposing beliefs in war
With the idea of freedom
And if I have a right to be me
Surely you have a right to be
But where we intersect
Where the road isn't paved
And the vision gets blurry...
Right and wrong cease to exist
Just our personal conflict--
How these ideas integrate and converge
How they clash and clang,
The sound of battle echoes
In the actions we make known
While we wait for a truce,
A glimpse of peace that may never come.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
