Don't Ask, Expecting
Author: Meridian Zuriel


Donít ask a question
Expecting a specific answer
That defeats the purpose of asking
Donít get hot at the person
You asked the truth from
If you asked
Then expect either a good or a bad
But donít puff up and get mad
The truth ainít always
Pleasing to the ear
Some people just donít
Tell you what you want to hear
So itís best that we
You and me
Suck it up like a straw
Bite the bullet
And accept the truth
Whether direct or indirect
Of course the intent
Is not to give disrespect
If the advice is constructive
And itís from somebody
Whoís serious, all about wisdom
In the position to tell us something
Then take it in
Conviction and guilt
Is a bad feeling
But whether one toe was crushed
Or all ten
Donít discontinue
Being a friend
If you ask
Then a fact and/or an opinion is expected
But donít ask
Expecting to be pacified and protected
Donít ask a question involving self
Unless youíd really want to know
Honesty wonít always make you feel nice
But it is better than hearing
Words that entice
Treasure that friend
Who looks out for you
Learn to discern
What is true
Nobody knows you
Better than you know yourself
If the person you ask
Ainít giving you 100 percent
Then youíll know
Youíre better off without their help
