Was there ever a time you regret,
a choice you made,
times when you took things for granted,
till when it was too late?
When misunderstandings build up,
and ‘sorrys’ unsaid;
when temper flares;
and frustrations added on<
and thus things came to a standstill,
till everything was unsalvagable?
Make no more such mistakes,
one party need to give in,
deal with conflicts with a calm mind,
hold onto unkind words.
Just as a string tangles up into knots,
a thoughtless tug makes them tighter,
with patience and gentle hands,
the tip to unravel the unruly lot.
