Opinions ( Everyone has an Opinion, Everyone has something to say)

The stench of irrational tirade on social media.

Debates, arguments and opinion polls.

That careless fart amidst a crowd wringing their

thoughts through a point of contention.

A deliberate disguising of truth often

embroidered with personalized attacks.

Caressing bits of knowledge, experience

and sometimes ignorance in a bid to remain relevant.

Everyone has something to say but very few want to listen.

Everyone thinks that their thoughts and opinions are right.

Unaware that we are all different and think differently.

A faltering that is a part of everyone’s background,

experience, race, creed, tribe, and perception of the world.

That is being human and we all can’t think the same.

Taking bits of their loud thoughts as the ultimate truth.

Drowning in misinterpretations, misunderstandings

and even distorting information to suit their needs.

Altered spews, baseless judgments.

Lies become marinated and hidden in stereotypes,

branding, name calling and everyone wants to win.

Last kicks of a dying horse!

Ego replaces facts and truth, reason turns into

an emotional caress. The mockery of sense!

In a battle field of words, where everyone wants to

remain relevant. Emotions are flared up, ammunition is loaded.

Words are being said, random feelings here and there.

No one is listening; everyone thinks that they are right.

But who’s wrong?

In a world of opinions, everyone has something to say

about something. Even a fool has an opinion.

Opinions are like food, everyone has a favorite dish.

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.

  1. Love this! I have some to say that an opinion is just that an opinion. People fail to empathize with other people in different walks of life. Your opinion does not make a fact at all times. People feel like they speak their truth and attack others who feel the same. It really needs to stop. People feel really safe behind a computer screen letting everyone know how they REALLY feel. Thanks for sharing!
