I Should Have Said Something

I should have said something
Instead I said nothing
Now I’m left to wonder
Could I have stopped this blunder?
Or would it have happened anyway
Despite what I had to say

The words were in my mouth
I could have let them out
Instead I bit my tongue
And swallowed words that stung
To spare someone’s feelings
That now need some healing

Would it have made it better
If I had broke my fetters?
Or would it have been worse
If I had been adverse?
I guess we’ll never know
Since I was too yellow
