Bitter Words - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Sun’s direct rays and heat in hot season
Nothing to complain about for any reason
I might have allowed it as casual feeling
Everybody knows and doesn’t expect dazzling

It may not penetrate or cause any harm
Of course it may be hot but not little warm
It is natural and may be expected more
Man will find refuge and feel it was not before

Words spoken with bitterness burn us completely
It will create impact on mind sudden and immediately
You are caught unaware with no defense to offer
Generally what is considered wise is to keep mum and suffer

It may take more time to adjust and recoup
Self assessment for sore relation and slight let up
Insult may cause breakdown with no other way
You may have set back and nothing to offer or say

We may not know what to speak in distress
Mind not at rest and seized with stress
Common sense on run and unable to assess
Hasty action may lead for immediate action to press

Bitter words may bite you slowly
May not allow you to regain immediately
You may find it hard to forget and forgive
You may offer no reaction and remain passive

It is state of mind that only speaks
Not sure of result but inviting future bleak
Damage is done with no possible gain
It is difficult to face insult and pain

Once spoken words with hatred can’t be taken back
Will spoil the relation completely with visible crack
Should not be uttered at all without any sense?
We should have room not to feel tense

Words spoken in friendly way also create tension
Relation will be at stake and in question
It may cause damage and turn it sour
Retrieve the position …………….

    fruitful poem....we can learn lessons from this
    Tongue can kill when it speaks sharp words...
    sharp words are like knife stabbing us to death
    bitter words can cause damage to one's feelings....
    it.s better to be hurt physically than be hurt by painful words...
    very fine write...
    10++++

    ‘Sharp tongue is more venomous than serpent’s fang’.
    Even sweet tongue injudiciously used may hike psychic blood sugar. LOL!

    Bitter words may bite you slowly and severely
    May not allow you to regain composure immediately
    You may find it very hard to forget and forgive
    You may offer no hostile reaction or remain submissive
    ----------
    well said about bitter words uttered in general point of you...you have done all aspects of it! Great one!
