Think Before You Speak - Poem by DEEPAK KUMAR PATTANAYAK

Speak a word in my ear
Rhyme a word everywhere
Sweet and soothing
Moving and mesmerizing
It is and it is my dear
For words you murmur
Reaching always afar
In Earth and in Heaven
And God even
Immersed in yours
To hear what you say
What you pray
What you abjure
What you conjure
Nor is He blind, nor mute
Nor does He falter
As you think Him to be
And you are under the veil
Of your ignorance my dear
All you have to do is to sit still
And see how elders pray,
Gospel music how they sing and play
And a few scriptures-talk
They read all through day
When you are in distress and disarray…….

    A Thoughtful advice from your pen. Very true said,
    For words you murmur
    Reaching always afar...
    So think well before you speak is a beautiful advice.

    When we utter a word, the sound waves spread all around..... and will create an impact! So think well before you speak and see if your words are going to create a negative impact or positive vibes!
    God can listen to even our silent prayers! The philosophical thought, this poem encases is quite admirable!
