Words,Words,Your Lips

Traveling on this street called life,
Be sensible,be conscious,be wise,
Think,think before you open your mouth,
Don't be lead by your tongue,
but by your ever thinking mind,
We are now in the days,when the words
from your lips,defileth your body, 
When scandals and rumors are the order
of the day,
When people in high places are torn down,
not by their works, but by their words,
When people in small places are suffering,
Because of the words of those who govern them,
When family and friends are divided not by choice,
But by nosey neighbors, who won't keep their big mouth shut,
Are you going to say something,STOP,THINK,
Will my words be positive,
Will my words make things better or worst,
Build an enemy or build a friend, 
Cause someone to live a little longer or will
this be their end,
Don't open your mouth,until you are sure,
Take your time,think it through,
Now you can open your lips and make POSITIVE WORDS unfold...

    It makes all the difference when people are kind. With so much of life becoming a frustration, we surely need some advice like this! :)

    It's almost frightening to think that words hold the power of life and death (think of all the abortions that happen because of the single word 'yes'). That having been said, we should all strive to guard the delivery of our words. Very well written piece Richard! Much needed message!

    This is very powerful my new friend. Words can be a dagger to the heart or they can have healing properties. You can tell a mans heart by the words that flow from his lips. Great job, words to live by.

    Way to use your anger. My favorite angry poem is The Rebel By Padriac Pearce. Easy to find online if you have not read it.
