Calm Down My Friend Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Calm Down My Friend

Rating: 2.9


You are hearing these noises.
From your head there are voices.
You imagine something despicable.
These things do not make you stable.

Oh, you are just a human being,
But be responsible of what you’re feeling.
Establish a sociable environment.
Do not forsake your God’s commandments.

Do forget those uncomfortable facial expressions.
Enhance friendship and bring anger to termination.
Leave behind what they did today.
As much as possible, be careful of what you say.

Calm down, human, calm down.
Receive the peace and do not frown.
Understand those people in that class.
Zone yourself to your morals.

Despise the bad work and not the human.
Utter with patience; them, you must understand.
Never have the thought of bad vengeance.
Go, and give them a positive revenge.

Calm down oh man of good thoughts.
Remember to pay the price after you’ve counted the cost.
Forgive them because they didn’t intentionally offend you.
It’s just they’ve done it without giving you a clue.

My friend, I know you’ll get through this.
You’ll find the resolution and answer for this.
My friend, I know you can do it!
My friend, forgive them for it!
