LITTLE THINGS

It is at the point of little things

That futures often meet.

The trail that’s chosen may soon decide,

The condition of the feet.

2

The very act that looked so small,

At the moment of decision.

Can turn the course, just enough,

To miss, Oh, perfect precision.

3

Don’t think that thoughtless acts or words,

Will always come to naught.

They change so much, in so little time,

And stay forever to haunt.

4

It’s the tiny thing done to a friend,

That will cause a friendship to end.

While a few kind words may win a foe,

Thus causing enmities to mend.

5

The twig that’s bent grows a bent tree;

A cause always brings a result.

Watch the little variations, they can be,

The awful, final, eternal fault.
