Mouth Trap

Fear can be a tranquilizer

or an energizer.

But it is NOT a healthy mind's equalizer.

Fear can bring passivity

so choose wisely.

A quiet mouth leaves room for assessment;

a great investment

to think before responding yet

So you're truly understanding it.

But do not quell your discoveries

as it would be a tragedy

to walk away silently

glancing past your shoulder spitefully.
