WORDS
Are words mere words?
Or loud whispers?
Our innermost contemplations?
And echoes of our hearts?
But words have meaning
Or at least they ought to have;
Words can bring sorrows or joy
They bear on their wings: tears or smiles,
For by the word of a man
Wars have been fought;
By his utterance
Love also found a place in the heart,
It is believed that ‘talk is cheap’
But it is not cheap when it makes sense
So before you speak
Before a word leave your lips,
Remember your words mirror your heart
And your actions mirror your words
Therefore, be a man or woman of your WORDS…
