They are all around us


They are all around us.
We see them.
We use them.
Some are harsh words...
Some are soothing words . . .
Some are biting words.
Words can give pain and sorrow;
Words can give joy and pleasure.
They are vital for all communication.
When words are spoken
there are going to be
reactions. . .
Negative or positive.
 Either thoughts are triggered
Or emotions fired, or actions performed.
Words color my behavior.
How lovely it is to hear words
 that are Calm and free
 from rancor and aggression . . .
To hear words that lift the soul,
And leave it with renewed
vigor and the
Strength to face what is
 before us.
Such words are the sparks
 of purity.
 It is important to remember
That speech indicates what is in my
As I think, so my words are uttered.
Mental calmness makes for
 calm words.
A pure mind makes for pure words.
It has been said that
"Speech may exalt someone
 To kingship or send him to the
I can not let myself indulge
in false,
 Bitter and vicious speech.
I want my words to reflect 
my inner, spiritual nature,
Which hopefully is one of
 purity and peace.
Words, once spoken, can
never be recalled.
They reverberate all around,
Go places beyond our control.
Today, when I utter words,
 I want to try to think of
What effect will they have on those
who hear them.
Will they be the words that are
 poisonous and cause pain?
 My tongue could be like that
 of a nightingale . . .
Sweet, very soothing and lovely
 to the ear.
It is my choice..
Which will I chose to use?
