The Tongue

The Tongue

It is a helpful tool
That is used as a dangerous weapon

It is so light
Yet we fail to hold it

Instead of using it as a magic wand
To tap a bit of encouragement upon one’s heart
Or a smile upon one’s face
We use it as a sword to cut people down
Leaving their hearts broken
And their self-esteem low

Instead of using it
To turn ourselves into little angels
Placing blessings upon one’s life
We use it to turn ourselves
Into fire-breathing dragons
Who insists on one’s life being taken

We use it to curse others
Not realizing we are really cursing ourselves
We must learn to hold this dangerous weapon
Before we kill others as well as ourselves

We must learn to watch the words
That we allow to roll off of it

We must allow it to be known
As a piece of gold from heaven
Instead of the flames from h*ll

I think if people were really aware of how POWERFUL their words are;
they would select them much more carefully.

La Lengua

Es una erramienta útil
Que es usada como un arma peligrosa

Es tan...

naaaw.. I gues you don't wanna read it in español.

Would be interesting, though, to insert between the lines a few of the phrases written on this board in the last couple of days.
