Things take time Could anyone correct it for me? Thank you! Things take time.. it takes time to clear up your mind It takes time to calm your beating heart It takes time to realize how fragile you are....and it takes time to accept that someone could come along to prove it. It takes time to accept not being able to control your feelings It takes time to make it clear to another person that you don t want disrispect him or her, but only protect yourself

Eloquent, clear, and almost perfect English! By the way, if you want things corrected, post them as "notebook entries." This is almost poetry and poets are allowed to take liberties with punctuation, BUT... 1) You should put a period at the end of each sentence. 2) "Come along to prove it" is correct but "come along and prove it" is more idiomatic. 3) "you don t want disrispect" should be "you don't want to disrespect." "Don t" should be "don't," add "to" before "disrespect," and correct the spelling of "disrispect" to "disrespect." Things take time. it takes time to clear up your mind. It takes time to calm your beating heart. It takes time to realize how fragile you are....and it takes time to accept that someone could come along to prove it. It takes time to accept not being able to control your feelings. It takes time to make it clear to another person that you don't want to disrespect him or her, but only protect yourself. You might enjoy this poem by Piet Hein: "Put up in a place where it's easy to see the cryptic admonishment T. T. T. When you feel how depressingly slowly you climb, it's well to remember that Things Take Time!"
