A Gush Of Spiteful Speech from an Ignorant Perspective; GOSSIP

Or, Mother Gossip cos this is a word that has established itself as a deity

in the hearts of humanity.

 

“When was the last time you spoke a kind word about someone?

When was the last time you resisted the urge to chip in a spiteful comment about a fellow?

When was the last time you gave a compliment

And from your heart it was something you really meant?

This is not a teaser.

I just want you to be true to yourself by taking a sail on the sea of your heart,

giving no heed to the winds of self righteousness and justification

to answer this question.

When was the last time you spoke a kind word about someone?

Words, W-O-R-D-S.

Words has a Way Of Revealing the Depth of your Soul.

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks

and as a man thinks so is he.

So let’s solve the math:

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks equals

(=) your words are your thoughts.

As a man thinks, so is he equals

(=) your thoughts are you.

Therefore, your words are your thoughts plus (+) your thoughts are you equals

(=) your words are you.

This implies that I don’t have to ask questions, listen to lies or

become a mind reader to know you because merely listening to your conversations from afar would reveal the kind of person that you are.

So think before you speak and choose the words that you use because it does one of these to you ‘make’ or ‘mar’

But we’ll dwell on the speech that mar.

G-O-S-S-I-P.

We may define it as casual talk in simplicity and sincerity

But that ‘casual talk’ could be creating a dent on someone’s personality.

Others engage in this because of a distorted mentality

But the  gravity of their speciality is in the deep wounds they inflict their victims,

stripping them of their joy and leaving them in emotional poverty.

No wonder Benjamin Franklin said thus

A slip of the foot you may soon recover but a slip if the tongue you may never get over'”

For a word spoken is like a burst bubble that is lost forever.

After all Math and words,

How about some practice?

Like the stick to the blind,

May your conscience be your guide.”
