Left unsaid

Hear me out!
Hear me out!
An action,
Of ours, eliciting a surprise reaction,
Leading to an explanation,
Resulting in a mix-up,
Fuelling a gossip,
Creating a wrong impression,
An uncalled- for tension,
Unsolicited attention,
Someone’s wisely said,
Best things are those left unsaid.

Thought behind the poem :-Some times, some of our actions may elicit surprise reactions from everyone around. And we end up offering explanations, which may result in wrong understanding. On hindsight, we realise that an explanation wasn’t needed and it wasn’t required of us to offer justification to our actions.
