Nuggets Of Wisdom. No.1 - Poem by Valsa George

ON WORDS

Words have a circuitous route
As foetus to the womb, they cling to the heart
But ram into the brain as a train of thought
And through our lips are expelled out

These vehicles of thought relentlessly run
Building bridges between man and man
They unite mankind as a single clan
Exposing our minds for others to scan

Silence, when utterance needed is sin
Use your words discreetly so as to win
Let them not ring as sonorous din
Throw the raucous words down to the bin

Know, our words have the power to heal or mar
So check out words to see if they scar
Use them never as tools to sneer
But as balm for men who wear and tear

Let our words come out lucid and clear
Let they ever be words of cheer
Let them rhyme as music to the ear
Let them never take the tone of a mutineer!

    Hi Valsa, you're right on the money with this advice. One of our Eck teachings says this, Before speaking ask yourself is what you're about to say necessary? Is it true? Is it kind? If any of these three elements are missing, don't speak. A tough test, but sage advice! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful, only disagree with, tone of a mutineer,
    being one myself, what can I say.
    However, the next time I steal a ship I shall
    be much more polite than I have in the past.
    Excellent write regarding the power words contain. (Report) Reply
