SPEAK VALUABLE TO SAVE YOUR SELF REQUEST... ANY HOW...

 

WEIGH YOUR WORDS AND KNOW THE COST

Don’t  speak if you don’t know

It’s like an arrow shot from  the bow

How meaningless the words that weigh so low

Speak if your mind and heart together go

 

Don’t  utter if you are not sure

Speak little but think more

Your words are like footprints near the shore

Speak to others  from inner core

 

A wrong statement if you say,

later you will have to pay.

Better be speechless but don’t choose the problematic way

Speak as  if your words could light up as a ray

 

We won’t get comments as we expect

so, better save your  self-respect

as nobody is perfect

so, protect yourself from regret.

 

If you are in the crowd, you better be lost

but weigh your words and know the cost.

A word of kindness is seldom spoken in vain, while witty sayings are as easily lost as the pearls slipping from a broken string. Like this poem, would like to read more of your work.

"If you are in the crowd, you better be lost..." I disagree with this statement. When I am in a crowd I look for the leader and discern where does the leader want to lead. Often, due to my personality, I will assume or usurp the leadership and go from there.

"if you are...be lost" this line is ironical to express the mindset of people always ready to make fun of others.
