May 18: Cogent - (of an argument or case) clear, logical, and convincing

Today, 

we are more connected 

than we ever were before

 

But just because 

reaching each other 

is easier,

doesn't mean 

 

we understand each other better,

or that our words

are clearer

and the others won't twist our words

 

It just means we get to say 

what we need to say faster,

so we can show everyone

that we can keep up

 

we don't need control everything we say 

because nothing stops us

no buffer

to hold us back

 

And so we have a duty 

A duty to spread 

authentic messages

not out of rash emotion

but of sincere, sound minds and hearts

My community
Our world
