Hurtful Words


Bruises soon heal,
but hurtful words last forever.
Sheath your tongue.
Silence your cutting words.
The damage you do to another’s soul
with your hate-filled words
will come back on you.

Speak only with love.
Use words that encourage,
teach, or comfort.
Otherwise, remain silent
lest your words do harm.
