Let it pass — 3 Comments

  1. Don’t stoop my friend to answer back,
    Why not just LET IT PASS?
    You’ll find this giving word for word
    Will never pay, alas!
    Though ’tis true of human nature
    This giving tit for tat,
    Yet truly happy folks have found
    A better way than that.
    And though it seems impossible
    It’s better in the end
    To let them have their way, and then
    Just LET IT PASS my friend.

    I know sometimes it’s very hard,
    And seems it can’t be done,
    But if you learn this better way
    A victory will be won;
    For you will save what’s só worthwhile-
    Both time and feelings, too,
    When you ignore what has been said,
    Don’t try to argue through.
    For then you’ll know without a doubt
    ‘Twas better in the end,
    To let them have their way, and then
    Just LET IT PASS, my friend.

    Now some folks always answer back
    They never hold their peace;
    In trying to defend themselves
    It seems they never cease;
    Giving vent to every feeling
    Whatever’s on the mind
    Regardless of the consequence,
    Then, after all, to find
    It didn’t pay and would have been
    Much better in the end
    To have borne it all in silence
    And LET IT PASS, my friend.

    Truly great folks never stoop
    To answer petty things;
    The unkind word, the bitter cut
    That rankles deep and stings.
    They are too big to notice them,
    They simply pass them by,
    And even with a smile sometimes
    Or twinkle in the eye.
    For they have found that after all
    ‘Twas better in the end
    To meet it with a smile, and then
    Just let it pass, my friend.

    Long ago, was One who wouldn’t stoop
    To answer back again,
    But silently bore the paintings
    Of cruel relentless men;
    “Brought to the slaughter as a lamb
    No blemish, His, or spot
    Though He was oppressed, afflicted,
    His mouth, He opened not.”
    And why? – I think I understand,
    ‘Twas better in the end
    We should know by His example
    Just to LET IT PASS, my friend.
