Your words can be more healing than any kind of medicine.
They can be more toxic than any kind of poison.
They can ease a mind of its nagging questions.
They can relieve a heart from its doubts.
They can free a heart from the chains that keep it holding on and that make it fear letting go.
They can spring hope into a deserted heart.
They can shatter a soul barely holding on to the pieces that make it strong.
They can be a shelter for the broken and a canon of motivation for those who need confidence.
They can build mountains of confidence and build stairs to those dreams that hide above the clouds.
They can dig holes into the darkest and deepest of scars.
They can strike happiness into the souls in most need of it, and
They can strike sadness into the souls of those most far away from it.
So, before you speak, ask yourself if your words are true.
If they are not, then you are fooling the hopeless into hope that won’t last & you are also lying to yourself.
You are breaking down walls temporarily that will be built even higher afterwards.
Say what the truth and genuineness in your heart need to say.
Say no more.
Your words are equally powerful & destructive, measure it before saying something.
