Forget what you say, your actions speak volumes,
Praise and compliments, are empty without proof,
Your words are important, your deeds more so,
When they don’t correlate, it’s a slug to the torso.
Can’t back up your lyrics, what do I believe?
The disappointment is painful, with little reprieve,
I’ve given my trust, don’t squander my treasure,
The way that you act, is my yardstick of measure.

Actions speak louder than words, don’t say it, if you don’t plan on backing up what it is your talking about, with the necessary actions and commitment.
In my circles, and my friend’s circles, half-steppers and second guessers are not welcome! The currency we value is people who are 100% real; 100% loyal; 100% loving to those who hold love in high esteem; and those who do not dish out nasty surprises.
If that’s your plan, start your own circle, and count me out from the beginning, not once you’ve satisfied your curiosity. Once you’ve learnt how to walk the walk you are so eager to talk, consistently, come and see me for an audition, but if you’ve already excluded yourself from my circle, man have you got some work to do to get back in!
Both trust and forgiveness are earned, not automated. Either you’re worthy of my respect, or your not… only time will tell.
Love and Respect always,
