The secret to a peaceful life sometimes,
Is knowing which battles to fight,
And which to walk away from.
There are many who will attempt to force you
Into doing things you are set against;
They will mock and jeer you into responding,
But when others pick a fight,
It is always best to walk away,
For there is no shame in that;
It takes maturity to look a fight in the face and walk away,
For sometimes they are not worthy of the energy.
However, there will be times,
When the fight must go on, when you must stand up for yourself,
And declare yourself strong,
In embracing a war for a worthy cause.
Defend yourself if needs be,
But for all the unnecessary battles,
It is best to just walk away.
