YOUR WORDS YOU SPEAK
By Patrick N. Kramer
Written July 14, 2010

Take time to give thought to what you say.
Think back upon thoughts of a bye gone day.
Think upon the message to others you give.
Were they of help teaching how to live?

Think back long and hard I say to you.
Were they of thoughts proper to do?
Of others did you think when you spoke?
From your words did a heart become broke?

Of one’s broken heart do you desire to see?
Say to yourself what if they are spoken to me?
Will my words be as I desire to hear?
Or will they evoke a sad pain filled tear?

What of the tone you choose to use?
Will it be one of a heart to abuse?
Then do ask is what I say truly true.
Are they of what you want spoken to you?
