Words of Wisdom

Watch Your Tone

There's more to speech than the words you say:
Your tone will also a thought convey.
For words may be warm - or icy cold;
Be touched by love or a hatred bold;
Be bright like sunshine, dispelling fears,
Or stinging - peppery - causing tears.

A tone that is sharp will cut and tear,
And say to others, "Look out! Beware!"
But words that are gentle, soft and kind
Bring healing balm and sweet peace of mind.
