The Man who Never Spoke

The once was a man who never spoke

For fear of offending another,

Many believed that he cut his own tongue

Because he once talked back to his mother.

 

Others believed that it was more of his faith

That kept him from speaking out.

And others persisted that it was a mental thing

That he had to worry about.

 

Still the man never spoke, save for on his grave,

When the old man cracked out a reply:

“If you never speak your mind out loud,

You still can manage to get by.”

  1. Note: For all my poetry responses that seem a tad silly, there’s always meaning behind it. If you’re having trouble distinguishing what I am trying to get across, simply ask! I’ll be happy to explain my work.
