For Once, Just Think! - Poem by Virginia Cairns

Everytime something goes right
It never seems to fail
Something must go wrong

Either someone has to die
Or you go blind
Or someone could leave forever

You so blindly think
Everything's perfect, nothing could go wrong
How wrong you were!

You so cheerily wake up
And the person you want to see most
Throws you off a cliff!

They pound you into the ground
Bury you alive
And slowly kill you

They don't murder you physically
Oh no, they attack the heart
They let you inflict the physical damage

They jump straight to a conclusion
instead of opening their eyes to see
That they could try to work through things

Oh no,
That is impossible for them
They just hurt before thinking

For once!
Let them think before doing!
Have them use their brains

May they backtrack
Just this once
And this time
Let them think things through
