Words have a way of cutting deep 
Deep within your soul
They should be measured carefully
Their weight  worth more than gold.

One comment made…. can cut deep
Can tear one’s heart to pieces
Once the trust is violated
All faith in friendship ceases. 

Double talk …. twisted words
Rearranging thoughts and motives
Can’t repair the damage done
Can’t change what’s been denoted.

“If you’ve got nothing nice to say,
Don’t say anything at all”
A phrase that has been known by most
Often posted on the wall.

Kindness can’t be bought or sold
It’s innate ….. it lives within
Within the confines of your heart
That’s where it all begins.

Apologizes are not enough
They can’t change the past
Remarks and accusations
Seem to linger …. seem to last. 

Think before you tell someone
What may hurt or sting a bit
Consider how they may feel
Reconsider ….. sharing it.

Always respect boundaries
Not just yours …. but theirs
Try to think ….. before you speak
Show others that you care.
