This is a poem I wrote a while back.  Our words, our tone and our body language affect ourselves and everyone around us each and every day.  Yet how often do you really think before you speak?

 

The Power Of Words

Do you not realize the power of your words?

They can help someone laugh

They can help someone cry

They can even help someone decide to die.

 

Do you not realize the power of your words?

 

We can say what ever we want.

We need to use words that heal

We need to use words with a good feel.

 

Do you not realize the power of your words?

 

Their power never fades,

Once spoken they stay.

It’s up to you to find the way.

 

To Realize

The Power

Of Your Words.

 

When you look back what do you see

Did your words turn someone around

Or send them falling to the ground.

 

It’s Time

To Realize

The Power 

Of Your Words.

 

It’s our choice to build them up

Or we can tear them to shreds

Sad weeping eyes turning red.

 

It’s Time

To Realize

The Power

Of Our Words.

 

So choose them wisely

Choose to do your part

And speak with love right from the heart.

 

Take Time.

To Realize

The Power

Of Our Words.

Today I challenge you to honestly think before you speak, contemplate not only what you’re saying but the unexpected impacts that those words just might have on someone.  Think about the impact words have had on you in the past.  Choose wisely.
