Words Can Be Mean Or Have Meaning – Poem

Share this Dimple Times Article

Do the things that matter
Don’t do them to be seen,
Doing things for the right reason
Should not be as if for a scene.

Be the voice of kindness
In a world full of mean,
Be the one to lend a hand
It could change someones mien.

Show a little compassion
To someone who’s at the bottom of the tier,
Give a little encouragement
Maybe it will prevent a tear.

Taking no action to be kind
When you are the seer,
Can add insult to injury
It can cause a would to sear.

When life has struggles and trials
We tend to question the why’s,
Sometimes our struggles and trials
Teach us to be wise.

Sometimes our words can be mean
Especially if they are hard as gneiss,
Sometimes our words can have meaning
You see more results when you are nice.
