you've always told me there was consequences for my actions
but you never defined 'consequences'
it always had the connotation of being a strict punishment in my mind
but really it's just the reaction for my actions
the effect after my cause
not always bad
but not always good
the consequence of saying mean words to the little weird looking kid
was a crying child and a scolding mother
but if i thought before i acted
and told that kid to come sit with me at the lunch table
i don't mind if my friends don't like you
because if they laugh they're not very good friends
and you can even have one of my cookies
that my mom makes just for making new friends
the consequence was a new happy friend whose smile lights up a room
no matter how weird they look
there are consequences for every action
but will you let that word keep the world's negative connotation?
or will you give it back its proper meaning
of simply to the reaction to your action?
