Silence will save you more heartaches.
You will have plenty to say,
you may have so much to ask,
to question, to wonder out loud.
But silence will save you more trouble.
Everyone else will have plenty to say,
and they will question everything, question you.
Listen, and when you have heard enough,
silence them all within.
And since words are like cages,
say nothing of what they say of you.
