Tongue - Poem by Seth Yuhi Musinga
Listen! Clam up your mouth and be silent like an oyster shell,
Your tongue is the enemy of your soul
Death and life are in the control of the tongue
Your tongue can be sharp, ugly and venomous like a toad
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
Let your tongue speak what your heart thinks
Listen! We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less.
Use your tongue more creatively and positively
Pick your words carefully as it has the power to make the sentence beautiful or ugly.....
You can change your world by changing your words...
Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Let your tongue be the fragrance of truth.
Listen! Every time you speak, you are either building up yourself for the better
Or you are limiting yourself for the worse.
Words carry power, therefore before you speak out, and speak in....Think! ”
Don't live by your judgments only; live by your words also.
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceitful speech.
Let us not misuse our words. It's an abuse of the tongue.
Listen! Whatever plans you think about, affirm it in your mouth first,
Declare it and you will succeed in working it out! Words can be powerful! ”
Words can be medicines; they can also be poisons. Words can heal; they can also kill...
If there's one area of you that the devil's got a hold of, it's your tongue
Keep your tongue from doing evil and your lips from spreading lies.
Let your tongues be a cleansing agents, peace maker and solution to misunderstandings
Listen! Place your troubles on the front of your tongue so that they taste sweeter.”
Your tongue is a steadfast loyal soldier in a great army of words, sentences, paragraphs, and stories
A tongue, if used the wrong way, can cause serious injury or even death.
Tongue and expression plays a big role in twisting the words and make the life hell.”
Keep your mouth and your tongue - keep soul from troubles
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth
Be careful with words you utter you might not swallow your own words,
but you might bite your tongue as well…….
The heart of the wise teaches his mouth and adds learning to his lips
Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt,
that you may know how you ought to answer each one.
Do not be rash with your mouth, and let not your heart utter anything hastily before God.
For God is in heaven and you on earth;
Therefore let your words be few.
