Sometimes, it is best not to respond.

So much evil a facade faking

As if, it has already won.

Listening does not mean you are weak.

But stronger, for it is your ability to restore peace.

Wisdom is accepting a no.

It builds character and it indicates growth.

Maturity is when I no longer hide

from that little voice deep, deep inside.

It leads me forward continuing to provide.

With every step, it is my guide.
