Pause when you are undecided on the course to take,
Pause when you are flustered and a quiet moment make.
Pause to calm the troubled mind and ease the sense of strain
Pause to rest the jangled nerves, your balance to regain.

Pause before you do the thing that leaves an ugly scar,
Pause before you lose your grip and anger goes too far.
Pause before you say the word, that breaks a human tie.
Pause a little, long enough to let the storm blow by.
