Would It Kill You?
Would it kill youTo apologise, to show remorse?Would it demean youto humble yourself,To show weakness?
Would it take awayfrom your dignityTo make clear your intentions?To speak with truth and integrity?
Would it make youless of a champion, less of a leaderTo defer, to consult, to give in?
Would it kill youTo say I was mistaken, I don’t knowShow me?
Would it be beneath youTo come clean, accept the inevitableAnd do the honorable thing?
Would you sleep betterIf you were always rightAlways have the upper handAlways telling us so?
Would it kill you,To consider us –Mere simpletons –Worthy of your time, your respect,Your consideration?
Would it kill you,To do unto uswhat you would have usDo unto you?

I am a mother of three, born and bred in Mombasa, Kenya. I am passionate about books, writing, healthy living and getting people to see the best of themselves. Especially getting people to see the best of themselves.
If we can try and live without being proud, our lives will be much better.
