Temper control

Temper control

By May Kwek

I really despise my temper
It is something I haven’t learnt to control
It bursts out of me at times
Especially when I am hungry or low

I crave the peace
The quiet rustlings of leaves
But because of this horrid temper of mine
I would feel anything but fine

I need to let go
To live and let live
And learn some self control
For life is not a show

I could make a mistake which I would always regret
Or create a memory I would never forget
Sweeter than speech is eloquent silence
Better than temper is forgiving action

The love and patience which my Lord does show
I really wish in me would grow
And tame my horrid beastly temper
Before it is something I cannot alter!
