Haiku Heights #318 - Sharp

                                               A sharp tongue
                                  Sharper than hundred knives
                                           Touches  the  soul.

  6. Very true Ushaji, some words can hurt us a lot, especially if they come from a person who means a lot to us...

  11. Very well written Ushaji! While sharp words can pierce and cut through the soul, soothing caring words can nurture those cuts and heal the soul, so words have a powerful impact indeed!! :)
