~ Self Control ~
  I've heard it said don't go to bed
  while hanging on to sorrow,
  you may not have the chance to laugh
  with those you love tomorrow.
  You may not mean the words you speak
  when anger takes its toll,
  you may regret your actions
  once you've lost your self-control.
  When you've lost your temper
  and you've said some hurtful things,
  think about the heartache
  that your actions sometime bring.
  You'll never get those moments back,
  such precious time to waste,
  and all because of things you said
  in anger and in haste.
  So if you're loving someone
  and your pride has settled in,
  you may not ever have the chance
  to say to them again...
