Turn The Other Cheek.Take it gently when you want to let your feelings go,
Everything that comes at you,a shock,a hurt,a blow.
Take it well and hide the turmoil of the pain within,
Give back good for evil,it's the only way to win.
Never give yourself away through smarting inwardly,
All in time the truth comes out and someday you will see,
How you saved the situation just by standing still,
Curbing tongue and temper by an effort of will.
This is what the Master meant by Turn the other cheek,
This takes courage,it is not a doctrine for the weak.
It is for the strong who understand Love's secret force,
Who can hold themselves in check and let time take it's course.
