More Words

(from Me and my Shadow)

Words that were written or said, which ones remain in your head?

Words released from a mouth or a pen, each one has a meaning.

Every word has a cause and effect.

Do we ever take the time to stop and reflect?

Once released, whether in haste or anger.

Words are not just words.

They linger then, replay, again and again.

Until you can no longer take the pain, so before you release your words, stop, pause and think.

Always remember, never let your words sting.
