What comes to your mind first when you see this word “delay”? ‘HURRY’ came to mine. But gradually I realized that since every coin has two sides this one had one too.
Delay sometimes means no follow-up at all
Later, tonight, tomorrow, meant no call.
Everyone says ‘Tomorrow occurs never’
I think saying it to delay is a way too clever.
So then I took a step one day
For I really wanted to delay.
Wanted to delay anger, anguish and pain
As it is they cause no gain.
I stopped in silence for a moment or two
Realizing I wasn’t really angry, just annoyed to blue.
I sat for a minute and closed my eyes
Tears didn’t flow cause I wasn’t really hurt, I’d just assumed whys.
I waited behind the car and carefully listened to what she said
Had I not let her talk at all… in a moment sorrows would shed.
I rested on my sofa without blink or thought
So soon realized that I would have uttered bad or fought.
It’s difficult at times to really understand
To wait, analyze, and then firm stand.
We utter too quick
No time to wait and think.
But what if we can delay
Maybe situations don’t fall and there just lay.
So much anger, so much soreness
Don’t we have much more to give something like happiness?
Let’s just delay and stay calm
We’re not losing anything out of our palm!
