Words,a gift from heaven
But used improperly
It could end up in bottomless disasters
Unspoken,they could be a silent enemy
Or a simple sign of consensus

    Unspoken kindness befalls the human spirit. So speak up now and let somebody hear it. But if your foot should taste real bad. Just appologize for making them sad. Love this kind of sentiment Arlid. Have a great day.

    Oh yes, how I agree, words can and do cause great pain. It'ssoeasy to be pleasant too; I wonder why the other is so prevalent. Great thought Arild!
