An Important Choice

Sometimes others cause us pain

Their words they burn like acid rain

Resist the urge to hurt them back

Or give to them a mental smack

Consider each thing you say or do

Because it reflects back on you

Is this the person you want to be?

Paining others needlessly

For you can choose another path

To make those around you smile and laugh

And others in their hurt and pain

Will see the sun shine through the rain

Humans have the power to heal

Because we can feel what others feel
