One of God’s commandments from high on up above.
You may have, a very good point, that you would like to make,
It’s just so hard to hear you, when you come off so irate.
Loving communication is the key to understanding,
If you want others to “get it”, then you can’t be so demanding.
You can catch more flies with honey, the wise ones always say,
Speaking out of anger, just turns folks the other way.
There is a time, and a place, where you can just “let it fly”,
Those feelings that you’ve stored up for so long, down very deep inside.
Choose your words very carefully, because words – DO – hurt,
Be not swift to open your mouth, and just let – things – blurt.
Before you speak, remember, “a gentle answer turns away wrath”.
God said this for a reason, likely to enlighten your path.
Today is the day to communicate with love, this you surely won’t regret,
You reap what you sow, the Bible says, why not put it to the test?
“God is not a man that he should lie”, of this I speak the truth,
YOU can learn to do this, even if it wasn’t modeled in your youth.
No excuses 🙂
