    I can't always turn
    the other cheek
    Remain mild
    and meek
    Deny my own voice
    and not speak
    I am human
    I can't always
    forgive and forget
    Behave like
    I don't get upset
    harboring a sea
    of pain and regret
    I am human
    If I continued to gulp my
    Pain, it would be easier for you.
    But if the pill is bitter to swallow
    it's even worse to chew.
    It would probably amaze you
    if you only knew
    How deeply I cared,
    and sometimes still do
    And believe me, I scribe this
    not for entertainment value
    But, I can't always turn
    the other cheek
    Remain mild
    and meek
    deny my voice
    and not speak
    I am human

    it's gonna come out
    that shout

    Sis, this goes along well with your other one from, I think, Saturday. Feels like some inner power is going down. Roll on, girl, roll on. This is a tight drop.

    Yes, it does sort of go along with that other one. I guess this is what lies between that rock and a hard place. Thank you sis, for being you.

    ~Man it seems you were reading my mind. I was feeling this. So true, it's so hard turning the other cheek, and to forgive and forget, both of these are definitely eaiser said than done. So I totally understand this tight scribe. Much love. Peace
