Triangulation (A Poem)

“If thy brother or sister offend thee,
thou shalt take him or her between him or her and thee alone.”
-Doctrine & Covenants 42:88

If there’s a concern, go straight to the source
(The best way to solve any problem, of course)
Don’t burden others with baggage not theirs
Just swallow your pride, and get over your fear

Not trying to be rude, when you blab and you whine (you)
Project on me crap not a single bit mine
Nothing’s resolved, and then others get roped
Theres a way that’s a million times better to cope

We seem to shun conflict, avoid confrontation
While all the while harboring festering frustration
If you’re truly wronged, then be strong and confess it
Go to who’s guilty, then breathe and express it

If you’re really hurting, then I’ll lend an ear (but)
Consider the words someone else needs to hear
If someone did/said something awful to you
It’s no one’s concern except for you two!
