// keeping watch //

sometimes i have words that spill from me like a force 
uncontrollable 

and other times i have no words,
just silence

i love words

and i love silence.

but what i hate is neither.

the the words that are empty,
frivolous.

the words that spill without self control, 
thoughtless.

foolish human.

you only have so many opportunities to fill that silence with
worthwhile conversation.

so stop with the mindless
words

the predictable,
forgettable,
conversation.

that makes
my
head
hurt.

and that makes me cringe
with disappointment,
when i hear it leave my mouth. 

here's to filling those opportunities 
with words that will leave an imprint on 
the mind;
with conversation that will honor God,
and lift the spirit of the ones 
listening.

  1. YOU EXPLAINED IT PERFECTLY SCREAMS ♥♥♥ but this is what beats in my lungs when people talk to me. I don't want a worthless conversation, I want to talk about the stars and the moon and the glory of God that shows itself in every living thing.
