What Is More Sweeter? Poem by Sindiswa Nobuntu Ndamane

What Is More Sweeter?

Rating: 5.0

We are given one mouth,
We are given two ears,
We are given ten fingers,
We use more what we are given less,
We use less what we are given more,
We talk endlessly, we write nothing,
I wonder which have made history the most,
History is written, shame is talked,
Writing can be altered, but talk cannot,
Writing can be learnt more, talk can pass like a wind,
I’m not a hater of talk,
But I was shortly asking which is sweeter?

A witty rendition set aside for sober reflection. Talk can be very cheap at times, l believe writing is sweater.

Such a beautiful write...For me, on my own experience, writing is more sweeter specially when you don't have that kind of guts to show or tell how do you feel, you will express your emotions into words.......Thank you for sharing, Sindiswa...a big 10

writing is indeed sweeter, it last forever, we can forget what was said and ink remains...
