Be judicious with your words.
They can fill someone’s heart with joy,
or slash it to bits like a thousand swords.
Think twice before you speak your “truth”
Will it add to a dialogue?
Or does it ride on the back of someone
else’s self worth?
Words have energy
each and every syllable a color.
Do yours blend to form a rainbow?
or do they collect in a stream of blackness?
Be proud of what you could be overheard to say,
beware of the whisper of gossip,
think of the persons face
if they heard what your words convey.
Words are living
but they can kill,
a person’s confidence,
