Do you think it’s our mistake?
If we are silent about everything,
Or do you think we could have our stake,
If we spoke out our mind about anything?
If we didn’t express anger or rage,
Or we didn’t express love and passion,
Wouldn’t we be on the foolish page,
And life be carried on in the same fashion.
Instead of living in world of regret,
Which can be contradicting as well,
Should we allow ourselves to beget
In this world that runs parallel.
Do you think we need to speak our mind?
Or we should remain silent only,
Do you think it will leave our virtue behind?
And we will be left either happy or lonely?
Yeah, we need to verify the circumstance,
Before we decide if our tongue speaks or not,
Life is a fiddler, we must take the chance,
It’ll be a good or bad lesson, that we’re taught.
So what is it that you plan to do?
Wait for the right time and just tread on,
I bequeath a happy peace to you,
Just for you, silence is like death, a bygone.
