Why are people mean and rude?
Short with words and sometimes crude?
Why do we decide to speak this way?
Without compassion with what we say?
How does the tongue twist and hurt?
It can make anyone feel like dirt?
Why do we withhold our words sometime?
While other days they are like a chime?
Words can be cruel.
Make me look like a fool.
They can lift someone up.
Even make me spill my cup.
Sweet sentences to soothe my ears.
Little ditties to give me the gears.
How I love to play with words!
Let’s use them to build up, anything else is absurd.
Don’t be absurd.
