Goodwill with friends and family
Sometimes eludes us easily
And the problem we often face
Are benign attitudes we embrace
I have seen what words can do,
As I deal with people everywhere;
The tongue is powerful, it's true!
Something to tame and use with care.
It's a simple creation of a sincere thought. This is true. Our tongues can bite and soothe life. Good work.
First impressions can be strong
About those we see around.
Yet how often are they wrong?
That is the truth I've found.
I really enjoyed this poem because it is true on so many levels. I've been misjudged, mislabeled, and criticized, and I'm sure I've done the same. You really captured the feeling.
