to be a man of your word

to be a man of your word

We speak faster than we blink

which gives us no time to think

to be a man of your word

is act on the things you say

I know to many people

who create on the fly excuses for their own words

as I call them on it,

as the saying goes

do unto others as you'd have done unto you

so I expect to be treated the same way by any of you

call me out on my own words

force me to act on the words you've heard

I won't back down or retreat

to feast on your emotions and opinions

has always been a guilty please

like a midnight snack chocolate treat

I expect to be held to the opinions I mention

I back them up with furious intention

at times we are guilty

"we" does include mw

we should all work on

starting now, about how

we speak faster than we blink

which gives us no time to think
