You Hold Someone In Your Hands

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 Under: poetry
You have to be careful
because everyday
you hold someone in your hands.
You may be giving them
feedback on an idea,
an opinion on a problem,
good news or even
bad news.  But whatever
you give them, you have
the choice in your delivery.
Do you want to be soft
or blast them with hardness?
Do you want to be coy
or give them the facts?
Do you want to lie to them
or cushion them when you
have to tell the truth?
You hold someone in your hands.
You can squeeze or cradle
this person in a split second.
So remember, be careful.
You hold something, someone
precious, no matter who they are.
