Funny thing is, that I am always trying. I use my words carefully. I try not to be negative, help build people up, create new worlds, and make the world a better place. As a writer and a theatre person (director and stage manager), my words are important, and I try to use them properly, even when I take my time. It is very important to use the right words, in any situation.
These are the prompts I decided to go with for today.
Poetry Prompts: How do you use your words?
Writing Feeling Prompts: Reclaiming, Risk, Spirited, Courageous
Use Your Words
they don't come easily when they matter.
After the fact,
when you have time to think,
then the brilliance shines.
Use them you should,
|picture from MorgueFile|
will only hurt longer.
Stand up for the weak,
speak for those with no voice,
make yourself heard
even if the words fail you.
it is more valiant than silence.
Use your words,
even when you feel that
all will come out is NO!
A start begins with a single step
or a single word.
And that might just make a difference.

Some music for the day. I have been enjoying the work of Post Modern Jukebox at work this week.
