Those who talk less and keep most – trust,

They have your interest at heart.

Fear of those who mercilessly expose their weakness

For they have other side of them untold – their strengths.

Awesome are those who ask for forgiveness

Before they tell what they have been wronged with.

Worry for those who walk at the forefront,

To protect and shield others strong they are not,

As they will be lost, for you and I, to an inevitable gunshot,

You are left with the cowards,

Your gate wide open, a hot spot,

And you will be preyed upon.
