Ways of Expression

Yutang Lin

What's right and what's wrong, put it aside for now,
Pushing forward with sharp words stirs conflicts up,
Ways of expression are of myriad sorts, you see, only
Being humble and considerate will enhance harmony.


Who's right and who's wrong cannot be clearly figured out,
Attitudes of arrogance and oppression provoke agitations,
Only after grasping's gone can one see thousands of paths,
Warm words and smiling faces are welcomed everywhere!
