Sunday Poser #123 – To Say Or Not To Say

That is a really good question!

And if you ask me, I would rather be inside the safe zone by not speaking at all instead of putting myself in hot water by letting out what pops in my head.

Weighing those words that I let out of my mouth is probably the most valuable lesson I’ve learned in my life.

I follow this simple rule of not speaking much because honestly I don’t know how to talk.

I mean I know how to talk and I do talk as I don’t suffer from any speech disability.

It is just that I don’t know to talk like the rest of the world.

I’ve personally experienced, so many times, what words can do within seconds.

Lifelong reputations among closed relationships shattering as if were tossed into a tornado.

Everyday, I see people opening the doors of their inner self for others to explore but this doesn’t seem right to me.

Because one should be very selective in saying what he or she holds within.

And I’m very much careful about this!

Here’s a little piece I wrote a couple of years ago, which may help you understand my point:

Collecting shattered pieces of life

After a catastrophic storm

Is more painful

Then surviving the disaster

Same can be said

When someone hurts you

Deep down inside

With nothing but words

They let out

Of their mouths

Without thinking first

And after the chaos

Both sides won’t be same

With each other

And their own self

Like they were

Before the storm

    Words can be weapons and the more unconsciously spoken the deeper they can reach.

      I couldn’t agree more with you, Erika, as my own experiences had taught me this loudly and clearly.

      I think that is a task we are challenged all life long in one or the other way. Only when we understand that whatever someone does or says is their opinion, their picture, and their perspective will we understand that it has more to do with them than with us. That is when we begin to detatch without running off.

    A beautiful poem Hammad. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I can understand your point and I wish I could talk less too. Least said, soonest mended.
