Look Before You Leap - Poem by (c) Colorofsky

Look before you leap.
Give it a second thought.
The words you say, the critiques
may show what you've been taught.

With prideful heart, with ego,
You may think you know, but, 'Not! '
Look before you leap.
You might not see the total plot.

With smirk and with great grandeur,
one might think they know what's best.
But take a look at the self first.
Do you pass your rigid test?

The words you say you might think,
will guide all to your pastures so green.
But is it just self-praise that you project?
Not truth, just insecure, obscene.

Look before you leap.
Give it a second thought.
Maybe you think that you know the way.
But then maybe again, it is, 'Not! '
