Wait…

31 Aug

“Life was always a matter of waiting for the right moment to act.” ~Paulo Coelho

Wait…

When something is important and you need it right away
It isn’t so important that it should cause you dismay
Wait…

When someone asks a question and you rush to do your best
To find the answer, stay calm while that question is addressed
Wait…

When someone says or does something that you find irritating
Before you blurt out something you’ll regret that’s laced with hating
Wait…

Take a deep breath, fall silent and take a moment to
Think about your reaction before you start to spew
Wait…

Regardless of if you think that it’s rude to make them wait
Sixty-seconds never altered anybody’s fate
Wait…

But sixty-seconds is enough time to decide which course
Is best to take and will not leave you saddled with remorse
Because you lost your temper or you got stressed to the max
Waiting is the most effective response to attacks
So wait…

    Loved these lines:

    This is breathtakingly amazing! A very wise advice. Each stanza throbs with truth and life. Love the 3rd and 4th stanza. I’d like to send this to someone. 🙂
    Thankyou for writing such a beautiful poem.

    Waiting~ taking that deep breath in before expelling our thoughts which may change the course of your life for ever isn’t a long wait at all.. It is probably the Best ever spent 60 seconds ever.. For once uttered, they can never be taken back..
    As always Miro a wonderful wisdom which you share with us. And may I say Hello to your beautiful lady Wife…
