Not the way to Act

Some people reject love And internalize hate Store resentment up Rarely verbalise a thing Until its too late It takes a certain type of strength To look at self Before you try to blame Anyone else Sometimes the first thing That pops into your brain Should go through a filter first And is not the right thing to say You gotta exercise restraint And consider all the facts Because letting your emotions lead the way Is not the way to act

John, this is so sound and such great advice: "Sometimes the first thing That pops into your brain Should go through a filter first And isn't the right thing to say". It is really sad when people post every silly thought on a social media site, or tweet it to millions without thinking at all.
