The voice


We all want a voice 

A voice can do well 

But what controls the tongue that will tell 

A small spark starts a fire 

Words can pierce like a sword 

But the words of the wise heal 

I ask that whoever controls the tongue 

Will be the wise one.

    Aww, I said a bad word or two. Someone chucked buckets of water over me. Well, they were trying to extinguish the spark, before it became a fire.
    Makes sense to me. lol.

      It's true that having a voice is important, but it's equally important to use it wisely. Our words have the power to start a fire or heal a wound. It's crucial that we think before we speak, and that whoever wields the power of their voice does so with wisdom and discernment. Let us strive to be among the wise, using our words to bring about positive change and inspire others.

        Life and death found in the tongue, bush fire igniter, both curses and adulation. The wise shall know the difference and the prudent exercises choice.

        So true. "Loose lips sink ships" A word said can not be retracted so be wise.
