To Speak or Not To Speak

Lord, give me the grace and strength
To keep my lips close and sealed
To hold my tongue and ease my mind
When my pride gets wounded and minced

Is it futile to argue?
Will it change things anew?
If I speak up and defend
or ask what I can't comprehend?

Breathe on me, Holy Ghost
Help me discern, give me a boost
To remain silent and still
So I could understand what I feel

Do I truly know what is right?
Or is it just my superego that's in sight?
Let Your Spirit lead me where to go
It's the only solution I know

Did you write that yourself? Would you mind if I shared it on my blog?

^_^ Beautiful! It is a cross, to love God and speak the truth or to love one's neighbour and keep quiet. Tihi! You are deemed to carry the cross. ^_^
