The Human Mouth - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The human mouth is great,
When sacred be the words,
That issue forth from heart,
To change a man’s sad fate!

But, none really know,
What uncouth words come out;
Unpredictable’s the mouth,
Of evil men/ women.

The scene determines words!
And words can do magic;
The face may lag behind,
The uttered words, sometimes.

Yet, words may do damage,
That ne’er can be undone;
Then, seal your lips and see,
Much harm can elude us!
