INSPIRATIONAL POEMS: “Self control”

 

Letting-Go-Bird-5

I’ve heard it said don’t go to bed
while hanging on to sorrow,
you may not have the chance to laugh
with those you love tomorrow.

You may not mean the words you speak
when anger takes its toll,
you may regret your actions
once you’ve lost your self-control.

When you’ve lost your temper
and you’ve said some hurtful things,
think about the heartache
that your actions sometimes bring.

Heartbreak

You’ll never get those moments back,
such precious time to waste,
and all because of things you said
in anger and in haste.

So if you really love someone
and your pride has settled in,
you may not ever have the chance
to say to them again….

“I love you and I miss you,
and although we don’t agree,
I’ll try to see your point of view,
please do the same for me.”
