Self Respect And Respect For Others

Posted in Wikinut>Writing>Poetry

This is our writing site, of which as members, we have a shared devotion to.
That's why we write, read, and communicate with each other here on a daily basis.
We want to enjoy being here, and for that to be achieved, there has to be harmony.
Read on to find out more...

Speak Up And Speak Out With Dignity

It’s okay to disagree, deliberate, differentiate and debate

But not to turn it around… into a barrage of hate


We are all different people.. with many conflicting views
But we must share one thing in common
Each one has the right to choose.

No glory does it bring
In firing a verbal grenade
No honour, respect nor admiration
When it’s purpose is designed to degrade

What Is To Be Gained?

What is to be achieved?
Nothing.. but to destroy the spirit of our site
We joined Wikinut to write, read... and enjoy
Not to indulge those who just want a fight

A Shared Passion

We all share a passion for writing
Why else would we all be here
So why pollute the writing ground
Of which is held so dear.

Inner Fulfillment


Wouldn’t life be dull
If all personalities were the same?
But when inner frustration becomes a weapon
It lashes out seeking someone to maim

Seek to find that inner peace
Throw down the weapons…and try to embrace
When kind thoughts and words you emanate
You can never fall from grace.

War Of Words Or White Flag Of Peace?

Which choice is more appealing
Harmony...a pleasant and respectful place to write?
Or a cesspool filled with poisoned pens...
Where sharks circle.....waiting to bite.


So to each and every writer
I respectfully offer the choice
To the left.... for those who want a war of words
To the right... all ye who echo my voice

Peace benefits all while hatred is the domain of the weak. We can make our points clear more by being civil in our approach and that shows confidence and strength of character. Yes, we can disagree while being tolerant of differing views and that is what creation is about. Uplifting and meaningful post, thanks Mariah - siva

My thanks Steve.
You have been targeted with verbal abuse on your pages at times, which was just ugly to see.
A good old debate on topics is healthy and interesting, not
a playground for those with no control over their emotions.
I've also seen comments left on your pages, by opportunists, using the subject you are writing about,
to be outright offensive and insulting to particular writers.
Comment by all means, but keep it out of the gutter I say.
Thanks again for your support Steve, much appreciated my friend. x

Mariah so very well said...the reason I write here on Wikinut is for the sharing and caring....lately I have felt out of the loop of knowing exactly what is going- but certainly I have felt an odd "vibe" so to speak..."Harmony...a pleasant and respectful place to write?"... stated perfectly Mariah ...thank you.

I take my place on the right Mariah, I enjoy writing and reading my friends work too. I was on another site where people seemed to love to hate each other, but have not found that on here. Life is too short for wars. I think we must all accept we have contrasting personalities and try to embrace the differences. I hope I don't sound pious, I am as guilty as anyone of having faults, and i must try harder in the future.

Oh this is why I return to my friends here on Wikinut, because sensible pages like this. I too totally agree with your sentiment my friend. It was the 'in-fighting' that drove me away..Here's hoping that those who stir have tired of causing bad feelings or have finally grown up! Respect doesn't cost any effort, but rewards you tenfold in return. Very well said Mariah! Hugs \0/xxx
