The Power of Words


Don’t judge the depth of a river
by the amount of ripples it
has on the surface
Don’t judge a woman by
her looks, her decision
or chosen words
Don’t say things
you’re not meant
from your heart
For sorry is only a delayed regret
and when it comes
there’s no stopping it



A poem that was inspired by Maya Angelou’s quote and was originally published in January 2016.
