No Neutral Words


You laugh at your jokes and revel at your humor
And carefully or carelessly your jestings spewing
And to the hurt of some or the applause of many
And indeed, they may seem all well and good
But take note that there are no neutral words,
Neither are there any throwaway phrases
Every word, either carefully constructed,
Or inadvertently uttered, bear the markings
Of your core being, vestiges of your soul
The state of your heart in her unfeigned reality
