HOLD YOUR WORDS

If

You

Can’t

Think of

Anything nice to say,

Just think happy thoughts

Until something pleasant

Comes to mind…

By then, feelings

Might cool down.

Simon Stargazer III (Aug. ‘14) adds, “If they don’t cool down, at least you’ll be in a better mood!” He explains. “These lines were inspired by a young friend (age twenty-six), who has a bit of a hot temper and frequently responds vehemently. Part of his problem is he doesn’t think before he opens his mouth. He also doesn’t take into consideration the effect that his words will have on others. And, he does not listen well. More than once he has said, ‘I don’t understand why people have a problem with me!’

Over the past year, both my wife and I have talked with him about his behavior. Happily, I

have seen progress on his part.”
