Topic: Body Language (11/25/10)

TITLE: Actions Speak Louder than Words

Sometimes the sweetest words that ever have been spoken
Are heard by ears that listen, but whose heart is nearly broken.

The casual way that they are said, the look in the eye,
Create many a doubt, and sometimes, cause one to cry.

The words, “I’ll drop by to see you tomorrow, or Friday for sure”
The movement of the body proclaims, this visit will not occur.

“I’ll take your place tomorrow, so that you can get some rest.”
One knows they’ll never show, their actions don’t pass the test.

“No, I didn’t even touch the thing; it couldn’t have been me;”
But the shiftiness of the eyes, tells quite another story.

Yes, our body language tells something different, than the things we say.
When we say what others want to hear, and think we’ll make their day.

It’s better to be honest, and first, examine what we say we’ll do;
And then, no matter how hard the task, we must surely see it through.
