Speech is Power

By Giti Tyagi

Beware O Man, of thy own speech,
A double edged sword that’s what it is;
Snapping ripping the love, the warmth,
Slashing slitting the human soul!


Potential abound possessed by words,
Spoken unspoken mighty strong;
A righteous pious expression of love,
A forceful vigorous revelation of resentment!


Sharp bitter opinions verbalized,
Amicable tender impressions voiced;
Contemptuous scoff or piercing satire,
Compassion care love spread around!


The Universe resonates the words thus spoken,
Utter each word with a cautious mind,
Let not thy words corrode thy own self,
Speech is power, misuse it not!
