Heated discussions

Rarely yield much.

And it’s a shame, because I love to debate.

To make a point.

To engage in a fight

And win it.

I found myself fighting today.

A friend of mine saw something differently than I did

And within a few minutes I was rearing to go,

Passionately delivering my points of view,

Until he said to me

“You’re probably more worked up

Than this matter deserves”

And this made me wonder,

Are there any discussions worth

Having heated?

Disagreement seems to be a meal best served cold.

All too often, heated discussions

Rapidly descend from wanting to have a conversation

To something far less important:

Wanting to be right.
