Misplaced Words

How often the words are replaced to leave a sighing gap

All, for the superficial conversations that emerge winner

Undeserving lines stealthily violate the honest sentiments

Consequences can be of any nature amidst unnatural languages

Hunger to be right satiate the heart that seeks dominance

Arguments decimate the sanctity of truthful communication

Conscience becomes an uneasy spectator of wilful dereliction

It’s a failure that life cannot acknowledge the power of words

Missing premises of strong foundation and learning are painful

As trust crumbles easily there is no chance of reconciliation

  1. “Hunger to be right satiate the heart that seeks dominance” and this too often a weakness. Listening is a wonderful skill we can all benefit from. It does not mean we have to alter decisions, but imagine a world that leads with “ears wide open.” Perhaps it sounds more peaceful. πŸ™‚

    I hope you are well Amitav. I’ve been away on vacation visiting family, and I have much to read. As always, wonderful words of wisdom.

    1. Honest listening do help us pay attention to the right words and truthful sentiments. When communication suffers it can only push away the truth.

      Sharon, wonderful to have you back. Hope you had a great vacation. Thank you always for the words of encouragement. πŸ™‚
