The Less Said Is More

Words

They make us and they break us
Can be a disease or a cure
Some of us have no limit on them
Whereas others are hungry for more

In some situations, just one word
Can bring peace and harmony
Other times misunderstandings
Lead each other to tragedy

Even though words are a blessing
They are a disease as well as a cure
They are to be used kindly, but remember
Sometimes the less said is more

  2. Wonderful expressions on words, Marinela! They indeed have the power to heal or wound us, so we must always be as selective as possible 🙂 The last line is a perfect clincher and so very true!

    Brilliant, this could have been written for me as, well known for using 50 words when 10 will do, family and friends sometimes have to remind me that sometimes the less said is more.

    So true! As a writer, I sometimes feel that love/hate relationship with words, especially when it comes to having to cut words out (I tend to be very wordy). But, I wanted to say, I really enjoy reading your blog and your poetry! Keep up the good work.
