Stop And Think
Just stop and think about it
Before you open your mouth,
Before the words come out,
Before you take it too far
And create unnecessary scars.
What’s this really about?
Do you feel somewhat offended
And unable to comprehended?
Have you opened your mind?
Because it’s not all about you,
It’s just different point of view.
So, don’t jump to conclusion,
It’s how you cause confusion.
It’s how these rumors start
And things begin to fall apart.
So, take a good look around
and see what’s really going down.
Take some time to listen close
and focus on what matters the most.
There’s always more to people’s stories,
so, be careful when you enter their territories.
That’s what everyone is doing. Thinking what to say, really overthinking everything and that’s why shit and lies comes from mouth. If you are thinking before talking, then you are lieing and holding yourself back. The truth comes out when you stop thinking and you just spit out what’s on your mind.
That’s a good point. However, where I’m coming from is that people should not get so easily offended by everything these days. They should pay attention to the actual issues and not just blurt out blank options.
People should listen more and talk less. Humans aren’t perfect and we need to understand where they are coming from first or at least early on in the dialogue so no one wastes time posturing and we all learn from each other. Great poem!
Well said, thank you!
