I need to grow an elephant skin
A place to be enveloped within
Many layers to keep me tightly bound
So I don’t make too much sound
A protective armour to keep me away
From the hasty actions I take each day
Not as you’d think to shield me from pain
But so I have time my thoughts to reign
Marinade, digest and grow
To gain perspective, get in the know
To halt the actions that will hurt you
When I see things with a jaded view
Far from just being a gifted healer
Time is also the greatest revealer
So time be on my side
Hasty decisions delay
And put off until tomorrow
The upsets of today!!
Elephant skin keep me in your grasp
On occasions restriction is a must!
