Some walk the path of least resistance,
No opinions preside, simply indifference,
Horrific things happen, they just shy away,
During wondrous moments, they’ve little to say.
There are times for quiet, reasons for restraint,
But with no interaction, what do you gain?
It makes me suspicious to witness no candour,
What is your purpose? What do you stand for?

I’d first of all like to make it clear that this piece is not referring to introverted people; those who have the good sense to mind their own business, and respect the privacy of others; or people merely avoiding an all too obvious trap, set in place to unfairly twist their words and defame their character.
However, I do feel that there are a growing number of people who remain passive in most aspects of life, showing no emotion, no empathy, no joy, no views that would illustrate independent thought or give distinct clues about their personality.
Yes, I acknowledge that there are people out there who are over opinionated, forcing their interpretation of everything down everyone else’s throats, but I also feel that without discussion, engagement in and celebration of each other’s highs, showing interest and support in their low moments, how are we to ever truly understand and respect one another!?
I sense that the key to a better future for humanity, and to its collective, emotional growth, lies in the meeting of minds and hearts, in a curious, yet embracing and accepting way. Not in ignorance, avoidance or indifference. Get to know your neighbour and therein you shall find yourself.
Love and Respect always,
