Poem: Think First

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Think First" is a poem to remind us to think first before we speak.

The words we utter can create alot of unintended damage.

The rift of silence will fester like a boil until it pops.

" T.H.I.N.K. before you speak ~ by Alyssa Brown"

Think First

Jumble thoughts around in your mind

before uttering the words out loud,

consider how the outcome sounds.


It takes a quick second

to hurt someone unintentionally,

speaking, without thinking first.


No one sees clearly,

like driving through thick fog

it traps the confusion.


The silence is quick,

lingering on as it festers

then like a boil it pops.

The tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do.
