`THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK`






`THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK`






When I see people less fortunate than me
I realize just how lucky one can be,
I have no impairment of mind or limb
But for those who do life could be grim.



I admire in them all they can achieve
They don`t mope about or sit and grieve,
They are happier than a lot of us
They get on with life without a fuss.



Their path is different from the one we take
Don`t pity them that would be a mistake,
They want to be treated like you and me
And this is exactly how it should be.



As there are some people who tend to forget
Who whisper and stare - I say without regret,
Words to make them think as I reply
`There but for the grace of God go I`.




                            
A closed mind
Should come with
A closed mouth.
