Power of 2 Words

By: Lewis E. Thomas

In our pride 2 words are enslaved and caged within our soul
A relationship is thereby shattered sometimes until we are old!
Planned reunions are destroyed when these words are locked away
Our eternal fates will be determined by 2 words we refuse to say.
Love for Christ is made void by the omission of these words
Others are always wrong and to look into the mirror is absurd!
God and family should be the priority of our soul and heart
In 2 words lies a MIGHTY POWER to heal or tear apart!
Zero in on love and speak the words with power to heal!
Else bind them with your pride so their power is never revealed.


* The identity of these words is revealed in the first letters of each line.



"If you're wrong, own up to what you didn't do right. That's how you learn and earn respect."

"Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit

before a fall." (Proverbs 16:18)
