Be Calm and Wise
Every human being can once in a while
Get upset or even angry without a smile
There are situations which create a malaise
Some have a long fuse and some get ablaze
When we deal with human frustration,
We have to take this into consideration
For misunderstandings, illness or unknown factors
We should not jump to conclusions as fast reactors
If a friend gets nervous and acts in a strange way
First wait, don’t rush to act, rather think and pray
He could be tired or have a fatigue within
As a human being, he is like a fine violin.
Humans are affected by every word, written or said
In a positive or negative way, they will embrace or dread
Wait and try to understand what created his mood.
Any harsh reaction is quite unnecessary and rude.
This is about unpleasant situations, which normally could have been avoided.
Conclusion: be wise and wait calmly, and let the water settle, so you can drink it clean.
