If I Know This Much….

I was walking past a school today

They had their windows open.


From above my head

I heard the teacher talking


Than the gentle roar of jabbering children.

And the teacher asked

“Why are you all talking?!”

Immediately I thought

Because we have something to say!

I chuckled at my ever so quick wit

And wanted so badly to yell that out as I kept walking.

It would have made the kids laugh.

And the teacher cringe.

It would have been disrespectful

And simply,


So I bid my thoughts silent.



You just don’t say what’s in your head.

Because it doesn’t serve a good purpose.
