Wounds and Words

By Aiza Iqbal


All wounds will be healed,
But the offending words won’t be sealed.
Injuries hurt for a short time,
But the feelings hurt – words spoken only once.
Keep in heart as thorns for many months,
Everyone has heard.
Slip of a tongue is more harmful,
Than slip of a foot.
So always be careful –
What you say,
Might become the cause of pain,
To someone else, and you won’t have any gain.
