Say Sweet Sincere Statement - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Say sweet sincere statement,
Criticize not against another;
Don't ever tell sour words
Even to a new stranger.

Severe sentence sometimes
One may judge at first glance;
Many mistakes he sees,
Attacking the faults at a chance.

Wise man has clearly said
Some sort of a reminder;
Although nobody's perfect,
Judge not the book by its cover.

Before you finally state
Related reviews on the air;
Better think not only twice
But seventy times over.

Never be too proud of yourself
To stand taller and bigger;
Nor say you know everything,
Instead, think others as wiser.

Hard-hitting declaration
Turns lamb into a tiger;
While soft-spoken opinion
Cools down the fire of anger.

Positive praises proclaimed
Mirror man's meekness;
Negative notes and critical comments
Make him dumb and speechless.

Speak encouraging expression
With truth to your heart's content;
Smile to brighten the day,
Say sweet sincere statement.

    May he judge at first glance;
