Guard Your Words

DSC_0194 (2)

Words like skipping stones

create waves everywhere they touch down

spreading // then sinking out of sight

not worried about the ripple effects

leaving everything clouded and murky

as more are thrown without thought or care

Be careful where your words are thrown

  1. Wise words Dwight …
    “Every sharp word we write, will be another molar bite
    Every tiny drop in the river, eventually flows into the sea
    Every little ripple on the lake, begins a wave set free”

  2. Excellent! Such important truth, Dwight! Good for kids to learn AND adults to be reminded of often.
    Wish everyone could learn that when they type on a computer keyboard onto a screen (social media sites, etc.), those are words from their mouths, too. People can be so disrespectful, cruel, etc. these days. 😦

    • Thank you so much Carolyn for your kind words. Words get scattered these days without thought it seems. Except when it come to race or ethnicity, then you get canceled! We have all had people who thoughtlessly said whatever they wanted and hurt us deeply. So important to remember that verse in our lives.
