Silence And Speech


Sweeten your words as you speak

For you may have to eat them later

If you spew bitter or sour words,

You may have to eat them later

and be forced to savor the taste

The sun will rise

And the world might just forget your silence

The sun will set

And the world will remember nothing but your words

Whether sweet, bitter or sour

Embrace silence when you are uncertain

For if you say the right thing in a wrong way

The world might only remember how you said it

not what you said
