A poem by Sharifa A.

Let our mind speak loudly
Let it talk frankly about anyone when no one is there
Let it fight with all people you hate
Let you give them punishment
Let you do anything you want

Vice versa, you only fight with yourself
You punished yourself
You hated yourself
You made yourself angry
You lost your energy

But please respect yourself
Be kind with yourself
Think optimistically
Bring inner peace to your mind
Smile and be cheerful forever
