Talk Is Cheap.

I’ve heard it said that that
‘actions speak louder than words.’
But what if our words
spoke louder
than our actions?
What if everything we said,
we actually meant?
What if we actually
fulfilled all of the promises
that we have made?
People use their ability to
speak as an
excuse.
As a defense.
As a shield.
To put thoughts into words.
To make themselves feel unique.
Significant.
Words make a person feel
secure.
They can mold words into
exactly what they want to say.
And other can mold words
into what they want to hear.
If actions spoke louder than words,
there would be
nothing but silence.
If actions spoke louder than words,
words would be dead.
And everyone would be mute.
Because everyone speaks.
Everyone
talks.
And talk is cheap.

This is a really strong and true poem.  I completely agree with the message, especially the parts about hwo if actions really spoke louder than words, there would be silence.  Nice job!

All I have to say is "so true". I have learned not to make any promises anymore. Good job.

Thank you. This was hard on my mind when I wrote it... I agree... least ways, people only need to make promises that they can actually KEEP. I'm tired of hearing promises and people never fulfill those. Goes to show how messed up everyone is nowadays...

Thank you for reading, and commenting! It really means alot to me.
