Negativity Cannot Live Here, A Poem

I don’t argue
for the sake of argument
or find humor
where there is harm
but that’s just me –
I dwell in a different place
and I know that I am misunderstood
but I seek not anyones’ understanding
I prefer to live and breathe
and soak in the beauty of all that is
and if not be a part of it,
then why tear it down?
For this tapestry we share
has surprises yet unseen
and though some may dwell
where words become weapons
where others’ feelings are insignificant
know that as I walk away –
I am not sad or angry
I whither not in pain
but instead, I prefer to dwell in quieter spaces
where the world whispers beautiful words
spread out along the landscape
and birds sing the hymn of my heart
and no matter the words
that some may use –
they cannot use them here.
