Take Time To Think

Take time to think,
Many times over;
Say something that causes love
Instead of anger.

Ponder all of the events
That come on your way;
Soberly weigh in your mind
The thoughts of the day.

Reflect on the lesson
That you do receive;
Put the message in your heart
Just before you leave.

Learn to contemplate,
While you're all alone;
The wrong you have done
Out there on your own.

Don't forget to meditate
Ere the Almighty;
Never be careless in asking
For your own safety.

Keep your both eyes closed,
Never let them blink;
You have the opportunity,
So take time to think.

    Beautiful advice! A kind of self introspection is needed to find our own blemishes and rectify them. If we take a little time to think many of our rash and impulsive actions can be checked. A man who takes time to think hardly land in danger! Well crafted! A sure 10

    Congrats for having berth in 500 poets.. very nice poem for time to think over.. wisdom never fails... beautiful poem...10



    your heart shall echo
    and blow
    the remorse tune
    if ever you any wrong you have done

    " Come to me with a clean heart, God says
    don't shy away from the guilt
    you have inner strength
    ask for mercy and breath easily
