A common misconception

Is that because I have strong opinions

And I am not afraid to give them a voice

And stand by my beliefs

With unwavering conviction

I must be narrow-minded

Unwilling to listen to the opposition

Unable to consider a different viewpoint

But this is often claimed

By those who talk over me

Fail to understand my points

Or simply refuse to listen to what I say

And when I try to explain my stance

Whilst respecting theirs

They wave me away

Treat me as though I am the one

Lacking an open mind
