Night time words to live by

” Words are a powerful tool.  You can use them to build beautiful structures but you can also use them to demolish and tear things down. Think about how you chose to use your tools. ”

    use the proper tool for the job that needs to be done…sometimes a sledgehammer is needed…sometimes one must demolish old ways of thinking to create way for new ones…not all destruction is bad…to destroy the bonds of slavery or eradicate hunger and poverty are these not good things…has greed has never listened to pretty please…in my mind a poet creates beauty, but also has an obligation to wield their words for social justice…and in that case tickling with a feather does not suffice…

    Words dissemble. Words be quick. Words resemble walking sticks. Plant them they will grow. Watch them waiver so I’ll always be a word man. Better than a bird man.

    Sorry- not sure how relevant this is, but I’m an old Jim Morrison fan, and your post triggered a recollection of his lines.

    This is oh so true. One of the things I say everyday is, “Please let my actions and words build people up, not tear them down today!” It has helped me in how I treat people 🙂

      That’s great to hear Kira. Words really are powerful along with our actions. I’m glad that you are aware of how you treat people. It’s a special gift that not everyone has or even wants to have.
      Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

        I didn’t use to have it. I had a bitter tongue for awhile, but then I decided to change 🙂

    words are indeed powerful. I remembered and was affected by something negative said to me in passing when i was 7 until i was 35 and became enlightened.
    we should all think before we speak.
