Softer Voice

I have to remind myself to be kind –
I wish it came more natural
Too easy to be mean with my feelings unseen
Like some ferocious animal

Dr. Jekyll could have elected
Not to turn into Mr. Hyde
It’s a matter of choice
And the softer voice
Is the one must be your guide

I have to relate to the things that I hate –
I believe that’s called “compassion”
Too easy to lie back while impulses attack
Humanity’s last bastion

Dr. Jekyll could have elected
Not to change into Mr. Hyde
It’s a matter of choice
And the softer voice
Is the one must be your guide

Maybe the ultimate goal
Is a modicum of self-control
So the dark night of the soul
Can be softer and brighter

Could you speak in a softer voice?

Yes, I will speak in whispered voice. I like your lines so very much, and appreciate a gentle approach to curb those harsh impulses. Seriously, well written, Keith.
