Some Premeditate What They Say

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

When I speak,
I am not team motivated.
Nor am I representing a cause,
From a membership of devoted worship.

When I speak,
Sometimes I do admit...
My head is quick to release words,
My heart has not had an opportunity to examine...
Before my lips respond.

But when I do speak,
I have to deliver my words with honesty.
Some premeditate what they say.
As if to have had rehearsed their reactions as well.

I do this.
And I know I am not alone.
I have to control my temper,
The best way I can.
