Left Unsaid - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

Left Unsaid
Written by: Wilfred Mellers, September 2,2015

There are things that are better left unsaid
Get those thoughts out of your head
Haven't you heard a word that I've said
For blind must be lead and the hungry must be fed

Opened your mouth and put your foot in it
Not all arguments you can win it
It comes out badly no matter how you spin it
Try to forget or someday you'll regret it

Conversation try your best to comprehend
The stones you'll break are yours alone you see my friend
Trees break if in the wind if they won't bend
This to you I recommend, let it end

Let it go, for heaven's sake
Let it go, It's a big mistake you'll make
Let it go, there are steeper hills to climb
Rest your mind and toe the line
By design, you they will be confined

The horse has already gone through the gate
Things transpire you can't anticipate
Let it go before it becomes too late
Why put so much upon a small plate?

They watch everything you do
Don't bite off more than you can chew
For its braver to walk away
Live to see another day
This I know for certain
It's not easy being that better person
Situations can be declined
By your strengths, you are defined

Situation bears reminding
Words need underlining
From fate, you cannot hide
So if you slip you will slide
Castaway your foolish pride
Can't bring back those whose died
So whatever you decide
The law is never on your side
