Words can hurt poem
by Rosemary DiFlorio
(Mississauga, ON Canada)
A Slip of the Tongue
A slip of the tongue can cause much grief
It can make an honest person appear as a thief
It can hurt someone who really meant well
And force a person into a shell.
Before we speak, we should always be sure
That the words are kind and not impure.
Preserve your tongue and use it with care
State the facts but always be fair.
God gave us our tongues so we could speak
But asked that we would be humble and meek.
Before He spoke He studied each word
And the meaning was clear and always heard.
His voice was gentle but the words were firm
He meant what He said with no uncertain term.
Knowing this was the way we were taught
Follow His way and you’ll never get caught…
With a slip of the tongue.

Touch Someone's Life
You can touch someone's life,
Just by what you say or do,
It's nice to be able to do that,
And I'm going to do it too.
It might be by an act of kindness,
Or just by something you say,
It doesn't matter what it is,
It will surely make their day.
So try and touch somebody’s life,
And show to them your love,
You will be blessed in many ways,
By our Lord and Savior above.tags: be nice to other people poem, spirituality, christianity, being a christian, works, kindness, child’s poem
