PAD 3 If I'd Only Blank

If I’d Only Kept My Mouth Shut

I often marvel
at how often a quiet person
like me can get herself
into trouble
by saying the wrong thing.

You’d think
by saying fewer words,
I’d choose to say the right ones.
At least, with writing you can hit delete,
but still, I should hit it more often.

So if I’d only learn to say,
“Excuse me.” “That came out wrong.” “Sorry.”
I may spend less time
beating myself up
for saying the wrong thing.
