Once upon a time my facebook feed was filled with many

Pretty pics of family and witty memes aplenty.

But then I shared a point of view that set my friends afire;

I hardly could conceive the controversy that transpired.

I labored to explain my thoughts and never to offend.

Alas, a few could not decipher what my heart intended.

No matter how I spelled it out, expounded, clarified,

They only heard a hate-filled  bigot shouting, “Crucify!”

So now I must resign myself to gaining their reproval,

A bitter pill to swallow, losing their approval.

But wiser now I come to thee with insight to allot:

‘Tis better  to reflect alone than share your inner thought

If frenemies you do not wish to make along the way,

For frenemies are destined if conviction you display.
