Not the popular choice
Not always tactful
Considerate or soft
We tiptoe around one another
Scared to say something wrong
But in all this, we lose the truth
Somewhere along the way
Candid conversation convoluted
By innuendo and veiled polite words
Cryptographic expertise needed
Just to talk to you
When what we should do
Is speak open and honestly
With only loving intention
No stomping and trampling
Turn down our acute sensitivities
Release judgments and competition
Seek to listen more than to speak
