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.
2 thoughts on “Choice”
Words can tear down or lift up…..it is our choice what we do with them. We have more influence on people then we realize.
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!
