Speaking of Karma


Speak not in anger

For words can cut deep

And what we do sow

We certainly reap


Let love be your guide

In all that you say

Mindful of the cost

That your soul will pay


A moment to pause

Old scars time to heal

Let go of the pain

The anger you feel


Great gift that it is

Given this proud voice

But how it is used

Is always our choice


What we vocalize

We disseminate

And nothing good comes

From speaking with hate


So, guard your words well

Think long what you say

For it will like spell

Return in some way


Let what breath exhales

Be not something spurned

Speak only with love

Enjoy karma earned

    it was allegedly Thomas Jefferson who said: “When angry count to ten before you speak. If very angry, count to one hundred.” you say it much more eloquently!

    Words have the power to hurt or heal. Why don’t more people choose the latter?

    Let what breath exhales

    Those are great words of wisdom Brad in this piece. I know I should count to 100 before I speak, as I can have a temper at times. It is usually when someone is being unkind or judging others when they don’t even know them. Also why I don’t like to talk about politics and I tell my friends that right away. I am a stubborn person too. Two big negative things about me that I try and work on every day. Sometimes we have to speak up I believe but we must pick our battles carefully. Great poem it makes one stop and think. Great piece. Sending my love and hugs, Jonikins
