Words Spoken

So many words that have no meaning, spoken in our society.
So many people not understanding, what they even speak.
Why should they use God's name in vain, does it make them big inside?
Why should they use four letter words, just what are they trying to hide?

I find it so in T.V. and books, and even on the common street.
What is it that makes our society one of evil and conceit?
What can we do but pray, to change it back to God above?
So on my knees, I lift my voice to Him, for the Country that I love.

    Awesome write Sena, so true as well.. The thing called good conversation seems to be a thing of the past.. Which is really a pity.. Hope your Sunday's been a blessed one ;-)

    Enjoyed your poem very much,I get tired of hearing that too,what is also annoying is when they bleep the swearing out every 2 seconds on t.v,so I end up changing the channel.

    great words you say!! I don't like to take the lords name in vain and hear others do it either.

    This is the truth exposed..Good job..I wanted to watch a movie yesterday and it was a movie with a good moral behind it ..I had to turn it off for about every sixth word was curse words...Sara
