Daggers


sword tongueThoughtless words like swords wound the heart

Spiteful words dig deep into the recesses of the mind

Careless words meant to demean or destroy

Scars long said forgiven rent open by angry speech

The ugly past spewed into a face

While sweet words of healing and love go unspoken

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life; but perverseness in it breaks the spirit (Proverbs 15:4).
