there are harsh words enough in the world

to break a thousand hearts

enough stones to batter and crush

a million innocent bodies

enough misconceptions and judgments

to lock the door

and stay inside one’s narrow mind.


but I will hold my tongue

and breathe in kindness

until I can only speak love

I will seek to heal

the wounds I have inflicted


letting go of grudges

I will boldly face my fears
and act with intent
having left the world a better place
because I lived.

––Angela Beloian

    Words can tear down or lift up… is our choice what we do with them. We have more influence on people then we realize.

  2. We should really all be mindful about the words that come out of our mouths. Instead of making people feel bad and uneasy, we should encourage them and always tell them kind words, words have so much power!
