The right thing

The right thing

To do the foolish thing
is always easy;
to do the right thing
requires more thought.

To follow the crowd
is comforting;
standing apart
takes courage.

Lies slip deftly
from loose lips;
the truth is
a harder taskmaster.

Saying I love you
is effortless;
but perplexingly,
I don’t really know.

  1. Best left unsaid as those words may be the most powerful ones we can possibly say. Good reminder that the right thing can often feel like the wrong thing.

  2. I’m hoping you don’t “know” because it’s so natural for you it’s like breathing. Good read. Which sez it’s a good write. Eh?
