Angry Words


Angry  words  are  lightly  spoken
in  a  rash  and  thoughtless  hour
Brightest  links  of  life  are  broken
by  their  full  and  sidious  power
Hearts  inspired  by  warmest  feeling
Ne're  before  by  anger  stirred
Oft  are  rent  past  human  feeling
by  a  single  angry  word

Poison  drops  of  care  and  sorrow
bitter  poison  drops  are  they
Weaving  for  the  coming  morrow
Saddest  memories  of  today
Angry  words  oh  let  them  never
From  the  tounge  unguarded  slip
May  the  hearts  best  impulse  ever
Check  them  ere  they  pass  the  lip

My favoite all time piece

Rex,
Wise word`s indeed.
Angry word`s are so often spoken without giving any thought to what effect they might have on the one`s that they`re directed at.
This is one that could be my favorite as well.
Thank you for sharing this Rex

 Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
And the begining of a new one.

Rex thanks for reminding me. I've been down that road and yes once an angry word is spoken it can never be retracted.

Your poem portrays words to live by,
the easy slips will send one sailing
out of control, just praying they can
reverse the course.

This one touches a place in me
where once I was a target for such words.
So important is it to edit what wants to spew from our lips!
"Sticks and stones can break my bones,
but words can never hurt me."
Yea - right!
The most pain I've ever felt was a result
of misdirected harshness.
I like this one too, REX!
