Poetry for my Daughter: “What They Say and What You Say”

What They Say and What You Say

What they say and what you say can be the same.

What they say and what you say can be different.

If you say something different, then they might ask you questions.

If you say something different, then they might feel uncomfortable.

If you say something different, then they might tell you to stop saying it.

If you say something different, then they might call you something mean.

If you say something different, then care deeply for their hearts. No matter what.

If you say something different and you care for their hearts, then you can change people’s minds and hearts.

Then, if you do something that says a lot, then you can change people’s actions.

And, if you do something that says you are trying to help, then you can help heal the world.

Love,

Soobin Oh

Daddy
