BE GENTLE WITH WORDS


Anger is directly proportional to the opponent
Yes it’s true we fight with the feeble
Today I saw this man shout and curse

I have known him for years, he is a rat
Only can speak behind peoples back
His gestures now is forever worse

Why can’t people control anger when put to test
Hurting words, that you can never reverse
Why can’t we be gentle with words than curse?

Control your anger for its nothing great
Hold back your anger for it’ll only break
Let the fragrance of our words, spread as rose

    There is a saying 'An angry man shuts his eyes and opens his mouth.' Your advice thro' your nice poem should open the eyes of an angry man and shut his mouth. (Report) Reply

    We realize the value of good people because there are lot of people with negative character. One is required for the existence of the other. (Report) Reply
