Angry Words - Poem by David Harris

Angry words can wound the strongest heart
and sour the brightest smile.
Bringing tears to the fairest eyes
and making the weakest howl.

We always hurt the ones
we should never hurt at all.
Our friends and family,
those would never wish us harm.

In an argument angry words are said,
they just tumble out of our head.
We wish afterwards we could turn back time,
but the words have been spoken and the damage done.

    Yes one must think before they speak, your words are so true. We always tend to hurt the one's we love and then feel very bad later. Something for all to work on, improvement in this regard is crucial, Excellent poem once again David.
