Better Left Unsaid


Those silly little things

that run through your head

all of the things

you wish you had said


the words rest upon your lips

but are never set free

as they shrivel and die

like a leaf on a tree


to have just the nerve

and or even the tact

the knowledge as to know

the right moment to react


But the timing is never right

and the courage is never found

by fear and self doubt

your hearts forever bound


So let your heart be your voice

Let it speak loud and clear

Through your manner and actions

For everyone to hear


Because sometimes actions

are far more meaningful than words

sometimes they get twisted

And sometimes not even heard


So don’t let it worry you

Or mess with your head

sometimes things are heard better

when they are left unsaid

                  You do better than I. I usually put my foot in my mouth. Nicely done.
