What you say

Your words, like a feather touch the souls of others
Fluttering over them, gentle and softly – barely there
Or like the cold metal head of a sledgehammer
Smashing through, forceful and strong – in your face
Offer them balanced with both the yin and the yang
Let them be helpful and guiding in the best interest
Building and moulding through love and care
Sometimes with hard and painful truth
Not wanting to be seen nor acknowledged
But spoken with compassion and light from the heart
For what we utter can break or make another being
So may we all be in the business of construction
