Words Carry Weight

Don’t throw your words like blocks
on other people’s foundations; don’t hurt
another person’s feelings as a detox
to quench your bout of rage, tune in to the way
people feel, try not to use their kindness as an
escape wheel to feel better about yourself.

Your pent up anger is not an invitation
to pound flesh, renew your mind elsewhere
weigh each word carefully; every glimpse
of your unstable mind leaves a residue; consider
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
get spoken; you are on your own once they hit
the wall; they get automatically set in stone.

A lot is riding on how rough or soft you play
weigh each word carefully, every glimpse
of your unstable mind leaves a residue; consider
each word as if they are your last, thank you!

People often live as if the pain is still fresh
years after a fight, so live right, they rarely
remember to forgive, as they should
your words are weightier than all the sand
combined so live humbly and stay off
“no-man’s-land” with your small talks.
