    THE POWER OF SILENCE

    Silence has never betrayed anyone;
    Even fools have been considered wise in thier silence;
    Friends,if you doubt your own wisdom remain silent;
    If you remain silent,you conceal your emptiness;

    At times emotions overcome our power of reasoning;
    But when your heart beat prompts you to talk;
    Your brain should serve as a check valve;

    Friends,Becareful about what you say;
    Each word that oozes out of your lips can change your image;
    And once spoken can never be withdrawn;
    HAD I KNOWN IS NOW!!!

    Tis true Mac....

    People don't realize they have a mouth and a language to speak to use only when necessary, like a limb. Silence can only be appreciated if used eh???

    Truth shall never be silence, a wise man humbles in silence, to listen before he speaks, only to define the order, The wise man speaks the causes and effects. a fool shall utter and the world will know the make up of his dismise, silence the humble the link, without spoken words, an open lynching for the meek, know when to apply, and when to humble under defeat, the just of truth, holds its own armor and never will it hold the sanctians of man only when the directions comes from God. Silence the golden key to medatation. Only if the mind set is equip with knowledge, understanding the wisdom of life and science.
