Poetry and Quote: Wait ‘Til The Sea Calms

Of what you have thought,
Perhaps the evilest to think of—
Write it in a book
And savor each stroke of words;
Ponder how it reflects truth.

For the time being
Lock it in secrecy—
No one has to thole the harsh
Of your mind’s rage toward earth.

Save it for later,
Wait ’til your sea calms,
Or dust it to forgotten.

It may then be
Fury into wisdom,
Caught in discovery—
One could learn a thing or two;
Leave the world alone to know,
Let humanity wonder.

Nowadays, people find it more easy to be swayed by emotions and tend to forget to pause, take a moment and carefully think of the words before it comes out of their mouth. There certainly is nothing wrong with voicing opinions out—I think it’s a very powerful tool to let the whole world know about the beauty of each individual’s concerns. But being eaten by heavy emotions, say anger, can affect most of what we intend to tell. And there’s a consistent mismatch between ideas solely from our minds, and emotions that we feel.

I notice that social media is the common outlet whenever we desire to burst out of the bubble we are contained within for so long. I suggest it would be better to keep delicate thoughts to ourselves first, write it somewhere, let it rest for a few hours or days, and reflect on it whether the nagging thoughts still have the same intensity as we initially sought. In that way, not only do we spare ourselves from any further stress, but also saves a lot of people from the potential heated/negative arguments it could create.


Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.
