The sharpest weapon
A poison for the soul

A tongue creating daggers
Sending them straight through the heart

You can patch up a wound
Cure an illness
Neutralize poison
And heal your body

But you can’t take back
The vibrations in the air
Created by your vocal chords
And the damage they do

It’s irreversible

And sometimes it can be lethal.
I've recently seen some teenagers insulting another one. Me and two other passers-by stepped in, but still, it's bad what some people do to others.

Words can hurt. Sometimes you don't intend to hurt someone with them, say something in the heat of a moment you don't mean, but you can't take them back.
Be mindful of what you say.

I heard a story of a gal who had gossip almost destroy her life. The gossiper came and apologized she accepted the apology but she also went to the roof of her building with a feather pillow. She ripped open the pillow and scattered the feathers to the wind then turned to the gossiper and said "put the feathers back into the pillow." True story

A lie is devastating if you believe it. The trick is identify the finely crafted lie that has been brought to your mind and call it what it is.... A LIE!!
