Say Sweet Sincere Statement - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

One may easily
Criticize against another;
And say something sour
Even to a new stranger.

Severe sentence
May he judge at first glance;
Many mistakes he sees,
Attacking at any given chance.

Wise man says
Some sort of a reminder;
Though nobody's perfect,
Judge not the book by its cover.

Before you state
Something on the air;
Better think not only twice
But ten times over.

Don't be too proud
To stand taller and bigger;
Nor say that 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
Mirror man's meekness;
Negative notes and critical comments
Make him dumb and speechless.

Speak easing expression
With truth and honesty;
Smile and fondly say
A sweet statement with sincerity.
