Words Matter

August 26, 2008
Such frivolities of which we pay no attention
Trivial phrases that are only the essence of the moment for us
We forget them before light’s end
There is no need for remembrance

Yet they remember
They sit and stew on such comments
They care
They live for this remembering

Our words give them thoughts
Their thoughts create actions
Actions never fully thought out
Actions later regretted

For though we never care what leaves our lips
Others do
And therefore we should too
For those very words may one day cause us pain.
