You were not thinking when you spoke today.
The thought process caused you to go astray.
Your point was taken, yet you continued to say,
Hurtful words in a cold and meanless way.
You were not thinking of how others would feel.
You were Hell bent to get across your appeal.
To have said what you meant in a kinder fashion and deal,
Might have taken thought and a bit of being real.
To touch a heart, to be warm and show compassion and caring,
Might be a new perspective, bold and perhaps daring.
Using tact is sometimes gold, and so worth sharing.
It does not leave scars, and does not need repairing.
The damage is done, we can’t turn back time.
Perhaps you will learn from my little rhyme.
If you hurt someone, perhaps each time you should pay a dime.
I would be on a beach in Costa Rica eating a lime.
Before the words leave your mouth, please think twice,
Perhaps what comes out might actually be nice.
By causing others pain there is nothing to gain but lice.
The point is not taken, not even by mice.
Perhaps someday, you might find yourself all alone.
Your words will have caused others to become stone.
They will not hear or care if you want to moan.
You will be alone upon your throne.
Heed my words as I do love you so.
In lifes journey we still have far to go.
If it is to be with me you need this to know.
To be kind is the seed that you must sew.
This is only written with love in mind.
Hopefully you will understand this in time.
It was not meant to be cruel or just make a rhyme.
It was to point out that love is important to share and find.
Look to God for help in all matters so dear.
He is right there standing by just waiting to hear.
Ask him for guidance to help you with what you fear.
Perhaps if you do the attitude will clear.
