daggers..

Sometimes they are like daggers
Piercing you through and through
Sometimes they are a lullaby
Soothing you too

They can lift your spirits
Or they can dump you down
in the pits

There are some
That you wish linger for the rest of your life
and then there are those
that you wish you had
the power to forget
And yet...

Why dont people care enough
To choose the right words

And they claim to have spoken the truth
But I sigh
Of what value is that truth
when you do not know how it be told?

There are some who
trade truth for someones tears
And then there are those who
dont mind trading lies
for someones smiles

(PS: Indyeah: I remember your post on words.. I guess your words lingered with me too..
hmm ur words left a trail of thoughts)

N..Beautifully expressed. Our speech reflects our soul.
I remember reading this somewhere....
Words have the potency to revive and make us free. They also have the power to blind, imprison and destroy.Seriously nothing is more soothing than a pleasant, kind word. And NO three words have a better effect than I LOVE YOU...Hearing it from your loved ones,always brings a smile and like you say lift your spirit.
Very Beautifully and sensitively worded.....There are some who
trade truth for someones tears
And then there are those who
dont mind trading lies
for someones smiles....wow...this shall linger with me.
