Things change quick…
On a dime…
In the blink of an eye…
I have been accused of being calculating…
I am, I must confess,
Because I think and re-think things,
Before I do them,
Because one thing I know for sure is that once a thing is done,
It can’t be undone,
We can say we are sorry,
We can cop, the old, ‘I am just human thang…”
Lord, is that tired,
But we can’t undo it,
So many things have happened around me lately,
That I know would have had different results if only some thinking had gone on,
Don’t get me wrong,
Spontaneity is a beautiful thang,
If you are walking down the street and you see a flower stand,
Please impulsively purchase a bunch and give them to someone you love,
On the other hand,
If you feel the need to cuss someone out,
Tell them off,
Slap the taste out their mouth,
Kiss someone else's wife or husband,
Think about it,
Your desire to wreak havoc,
Will probably pass and you will save yourself and someone else,
A lot of pain…
Because once you say those words,
Or do that thing,
They are out there,
I recall years ago,
Someone was telling me how sorry they were,
And all I could think was this,
‘We are never sorry until we have done someone wrong…’
And you know what sorry don’t change much,
Sorry I beat you up,
Doesn’t unbeat you,
Sorry I cheated on you,
Doesn’t uncheat you,
Sorry I killed someone,
Doesn’t unkill ‘em,
Just thinking,
Before acting can make a huge difference,
Because it only takes the blink of an eye,
To change one’s life,
