Hold peace today

Today ensure

Words are not flung,

No heart is with

Harsh words stung.


A thousand splendid

Truths we realise

When we observe silence,

And choose to be wise.


Affirm to yourself

once, twice, thrice,

Words are over-priced,

If at all I speak,

Only goodwill

And blessings,

My words ought to

Either spread or seek.


Words are meant to be

In prayers sung,

Silence is

My mother tongue,

Quiet is

My other tongue.

Speak only if you can improve upon the silence and add real value by uttering words.
