When a group converse together
it will be their own choice whether
they play an active part or not
depending on the skills they’ve got.

Some will need facilitation
to establish a foundation
for a safe and friendly place
to converse at their own pace.

Others may need professionals
or seclusion of confessionals
in order to express their view
without someone who might argue.

Some may prefer a verbal group
to talk about the way they poop.
A place to find some empathy
or maybe even sympathy.

There’s those who have the skills to write
and so, for them a group seems right
communicating in this way
so that they may have their say.

There’s those who like the internet
to go and know that they can get
all the chat that they may need
to bring their knowledge up to speed.

Social media can become
the preferred way to talk for some.
Avoiding close proximity,
providing anonymity.

It doesn’t matter what you choose
for there is little you would lose
by joining in a confluence
to stimulate your confidence.

Mtnman : You are a talented man Bill. The message is precise. Sep 04, 2020
Bill : Thank you Mtnman. Writing rhyme used to feel like a most peculiar pastime and was reserved for those aspects of life that irritated me most. However, as life and experience moved on, I learned that this creative activity helped me to think more clearly and express my thoughts in an alternative artistic form to that of fine-art. (which was making me ill - as I became obsessive about finishing paintings). Best wishes Bill Sep 04, 2020
