Un

We can never set the slate clean
Un-say, un-do, un-make.
Life moves forward without erase
Un-pick, un-change, un-place.

If what you do has permanence
Your actions tangible
Your words imprint
Then shouldn’t you think
Before doing it
Before you dip pen in ink?

You can’t reverse reality
Though you undertake to try,
And understand the consequences,
And underline the why
And under-state the reason
You under-bake the bread
And under-fill the silence
As words cannot be unsaid.
