Why do you persist
With shameful remarks
That lead to insults
That tear us apart?

Your careless claims
Thoughtless and lame
Often intended
To hurt and to mame.

Give it some thought
Before letting go
With words so cold
They turn rain to snow.

Brutal and cruel
They cut like a knife
Razor sharp
Causing such strife.

Look into the mirror
See your reflection
Take notice of weakness
Stop the projection.

Try being kind
Show some compassion
Your bullying ways
Such a hateful distraction.

When looking to blame
Stop and hold back
Think twice before making
A verbal  attack.

There’s none without fault
On this earthly path
Reach out with kindness
Contain your self wrath.

  1. Thank you for sharing… 🙂

    “A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
    The seeds of distrust, it can sow,
    So unless you know it’s the truth,
    Be careful of stones that you throw.
    ( Larry ”Dutch” Woller )
