Francis Duggan Words Poems

Be Careful With Your Words

With words I put to paper and words that I say
I hope I don't cause offence in any way
And since some feel offended by some others truth
In our usage of words we should not lack in ruth.

The Wise One Is A Man Of Few Words

The wise one is a man of few words he does not belong to a Social Club
He has a glass of wine after supper he is never at the Local Pub
Most who know him think that he is not wise since he has so little to say
Feel lucky they say that if from him you get a hello or good day

Words Meant For To Hurt

They can cause resentment the feelings they sting
Words used for to hurt can be a painful thing
And if with your words you do choose to be cruel
To ill feelings you surely will light the fuel

Self Praise It Is No Praise Those Words I Recall

Self praise it is no praise those words I recall
And pride they will tell you comes before a fall
And at times we all have to swallow our pride
But when one door on us closes another opens wide.

With Words We Can Be Insulting

Words can be so very hurtful we hurt others when crude things to them we say
I should know I've hurt people with words in karma for that I will pay
Some times we can hurt people's feelings without even meaning to
Amazing the power of the written or the spoken word the damage a few words can do.

Words Can Be So Very Hurtful

Words can be so very hurtful some men never think before they speak
Men who weep aloud in public places should not be branded as weak
I cannot see it as unmanly if people their true feelings show
Rednecks may well define their ideas of manhood though little of Human feelings they know.


Words can make you happy or cause you mental pain
And the hurt of words said with the hurted remain
For more than a month or for more than a year
Some words said about us may be best not to hear.

The Poets Live On In Their Words

'Tis said by some that poets are born and poets cannot be made
Whilst others say that anyone can learn the wordsmith trade
And good poets come and good poets go but their words will live on
And their poems will be read and loved long after they are gone.

She Was Not Pleased With My Words

Since none have come back to tell us if the afterlife World exist
The advice of the converted I have chosen to resist.
