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.
