One of the Many Hard Lessons Learned

One of the hardest things for me to learn came from a cartoon,

“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.”

It hasn’t been easy to learn restraint in a world whereย 

saying something mean is actually encouraged.

I don’t like to say mean things and every time I do

I feel really awful afterwards.

I have been called spineless and weak

and even been told to knock off that martyr sh*t,

I could judge and spew out the mean awful things that enter my mind

from time to time,

but nothing will get solved

and i think things only get worse

for me, for the person and the world around me.
