Oral Ooze

A meaningful lesson
a person should learn
is avoiding transgression
through words that might burn.

By keeping the tongue
on an even keel,
no hatred is flung
when words aim to heal.

Written for the 10/19/14 prompt at Creative Bloomings “Sunday Seed” to write a poem about one of life’s lessons.
