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

          at the evergreen ranch
          stood silently in awe

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