Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy.
Some things just have to be said
You do not want to say them
so you look around the room...
You look around the world!
You look around the universe!
for somebody- anybody!
To say what has to be said.
It looks like it has to be you
So, you go for it
you know there has to be a way to say this without hurting
Because all you want to do is help
But how do you say what needs to be said ....and not be ....well...mean
Remember the words of Tennessee Williams?
All cruel people describe themselves as paragons of frankness.
That's not you!
But the truth hurts, right?
Only if you make it hurt
Try a little a sugar with that lemon
Heap on the sugar
Just put in the lemon for zest
You don’t have to water it down
Just mix it up a bit...
And that’s poetiquejustis
Speak the truth in love….
