Poetry By: padrine

sometimes we just want to say to others what we want to, not considering whether it will hurt or not. what could be a joke or nothing to us can be serious or something to someone else

Words, so easily spoken

No concern for the feelings of another

It leaves behind people who are broken

By what we say to each other

Words, they cut so deep

Whether serious or in jest

Words to ourselves we should keep

If we know that it's not for the best

Don't cause hurt or pain

Think before you speak

What do you think you can gain?

By stomping on the one who is weak

Count your words one by one

If you do that, you're one in a million

It can cause someone to stay or run

Think before you offer your opinion

Don't use words lightly

Use it to encourage, to uplift

Even if change appears slightly

Your words can keep someone adrift

So let us all try

To speak a word that is kind

Life is swiftly passing by

Think before you speak your mind
