Our Tongues

Post  WARRIOR on Wed 07 Jul 2010, 2:29 pm

The power of the tongue
Many donít even consider
Without a thought they will
Speak the words away, they whither.

Fly they do on otherís lips
With reinvention of meaning
Now it is unleashed
And the damage escalates.

Flatter, stammer, hesitate,
Justify, oh my!
And this member to communicate
Can also bite and devour
Consume and consume -
Give it no room.

Such a small part of us
Yet all that we feel in our hearts
Flows through our mouths
As expression it parts.

Truth blurts out of control
And all can see our knarly soul
Or beauty divine forth will shine.
And words build
And words destroy
Others can scar forever.

I ask, the tongue,
Can it ever consistently be kind?

Thank you for the reminder. The tongue is so powerful- for good or for bad. We need to prayconstantly: 'Lord, set a guard on my lips or may the words of my moy=th and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you....' before we speak.
