Offended

Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

Politicians come, politicians go.
Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

Conflicts arise out of differing points of view.
While one heart simmers, the other stews.
Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

Out of religions arise
a boasting that is uncompromised.
Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

Unsightly things and aromas
that make my nostrils sting
my fellow man ungraciously sings.
Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

Oh when at first I think my eyes have deceived,
truths rain down all through the eve.
Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

To relinquish control
to some other soul.
Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

Influences come, influences go.
Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

At last I come to rest
seldom offering my best.
For allowing others thoughts, I guess
to lay heavy within my chest.
Oh to be offended,
when at last I thought
my mind was all mended.

Certainly there is more to me
That, oh, I must let others see!
