Think!

December 2, 2010

Should you always say what you feel
Think, is the person you're telling going to be able to heal

Is what you're saying necessary for everyone else to know
Just because you're thinking something, maybe you should just let it go

Everyone else around you may not be as strong
Some things need to be kept hidden and you should move along

You don't know where that person has come from or where he's going to go
What kind of day he or she has had, you just don't know.

Before you blurt out everything you feel
Think, is the person listening going to be able to heal?

I wrote this poem because people need to know that sometimes thinking aloud or just being honest can be really hurtful. Im not saying we should lie, its just we need to start thinking about what we say before we say it.
