Weigh Each Word

Don’t throw
words like blocks.
Don’t hurt
feelings as a detox.

Tune into the way
how people feel.
Try to remember not to
use them as an escape wheel.

It’s not an invitation
to pound flesh.
Renew your mind
and stay refreshed.

Weigh each word carefully,
words leave a residue.
Weigh each word as if
they are your last, thank you

Words can sting
and hurt like crazy.
Words can stink
and make everything hazy.

Once they are said,
you are on your own.
Once they hit the wall,
they are set in stone.

There’s an emphasis
placed on “weigh”.
There’s a lot riding
on how rough or soft you play.

Weigh each word carefully,
words leave a residue
Weigh each word as if
they are your last, thank you

People will forget
the lovely things for a season.
Yet, they will always remember
the bad things for some reason.

And they will hurt as if
the pain is fresh so do good.
And they won’t often remember
to forgive like they should.

Remember words are
heavier than sand.
Remember to stay humble
and stay off of “no man’s land”.
