The Other Cheek

Pause for a minute

before you speak.

Think long and hard,

for you know you will not be

offered the other cheek.

Are you ready to discard?

There is no going back

if you take this line of attack.

The hurt you inflict

will never be forgiven

no matter how many times

you ask for contrition.

This is your last chance

to prove you are not weak

so, pause for a minute

before you speak.
