Better To Keep Silent.

Poem by ckim mbasa

Most important is respect, that will lead you through,
With or without grace, it’s bad to flatter,
For service needed, it’s no good to advertise self,
When short of words, its better to keep silent.

It’s all about respect, wherever you happen,
When you speak well, no one to ignore,
Shun self from blame, for others to flout,
When short of words, it’s better to keep silent,

Better not to say, for people won’t humiliate you,
When you want to blow, that’s flattering
You will forever be characterized, if you learnt to respect,
When short of words, its better to keep silent.

Wandering while lamenting, again your dealing,
Not showing wisdom, indolence emerging,
Time and again sending us, the audience highlights,
When short of words, its better to keep silent.
