Sometimes people will say bad things about you,
Sometimes people will say things to make you cry.
But you cannot allow them to make you feel sad and blue,
Because sometimes they may be telling a lie.
Even worst is when they say it straight to your face,
Then it makes you feel angry and your face gets red.
But you don’t have to go to that unhappy place,
Choose your attitude, smile, and hold up your head.
People often say very mean and hurtful things,
Sometimes they mean it, but sometimes they don’t even think.
You can be heartbroken with all the pain it brings,
Or you can stand tall and walk away instead of sink.
What others say is just their opinion and not a fact,
So you don’t have to believe any of the hurtful words they say.
Some of them are putting on a show, it’s just an act,
When they talk bad about you, get on your knees and pray.

Sometimes when people say hurtful things about you, it is because they might be having a rough time at home. So, learn to be patient and learn to forgive.
What is something unkind that someone has said to you? What do you think Jesus wants you to do in return?
