Words can be Worthless or Words can be Golden

Standard

For some people Words come Cheap!  Sadly, some people can “Blah, Blah, Blah” words all day long and never mean a single thing they say.  Their words either fill space or are merely a means to an end.

Empty word after empty word, their conversation, statements, and promises come to mean ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.  No matter how beautiful, sweet, or hopeful the words sound, if the person behind them doesn’t have the intention to follow through or can’t be trusted, then the words are worthless.

I know there will be miscommunications, or facts mistaken (from time to time) after all, we are human.  On occasion, perhaps something will prevent us from being able to carry out the actions to make our words true.  However, these instances should be seldom; an anomaly – not constant.

Don’t make promises you don’t mean to keep. Don’t say you will do something with NO intention of standing behind your words.

A person who is known to be true to their words doesn’t even have to use “I promise” – the recipient can know, because of the person’s character, that the words/agreements will be kept.

It is up to you (each person) to decide whether to be a person of your word.  Overall, your own actions will determine whether your words are worthless or valuable.

Blaring through the Silence (prose)

Standard

A flood of memories from throughout my life

Random surges of emotion –

Joy, Courage, Awe, Fear, Strength, Frailty, …

A tidal wave of dreams and hopes

Streams of thoughts meander through

My pen dances across the page yet

My blogs lie in silence, comatose

 

Verbose cascades continue unabated,

Incomplete, raw, fresh and real

Bombarding the white abyss

Merely chronicled

My words reflect from the page

Yet my mind measures, it contemplates.

 

My heart, my expressions are sincere, genuine

My thoughts honest and candid

Words not to be released upon the world unrestricted

However in due time with reflection and kind consideration

Expounding on the thoughts that sporadically

Blare through the silence
