Learning My Speech


Every word carries a meaning.

Every word means something.

We speak up when it really matters.

And we speak in intelligible language.

*******

We speak up when there is a problem.

We speak up when something is not right.

We speak up when we see injustice.

We speak up when we hear of prejudice.

We speak up when power is abused.

We speak up when freedom is at stake.

*******

Sometimes, we speak up when something is bothering us.

We want to nip it at the bud.

We don’t want small things to irritate us.

And we don’t want to be emotionally and mentally disturbed by big problems.

*******

We speak to make people think.

We speak to make people do something.

We speak to help people reason and reason well.

We speak to make people aware of the lies they believe.

We speak to make people follow the truths.

*******

Sometimes, we speak to make people smile and laugh.

In fact, some of us can be so funny that they don’t need to speak to make people laugh!

We speak to make people forget their problems for a while.

We speak to console those in misery and pain.

We speak to make people happy!

*******

We speak to make people like to listen to us.

We show interest in our conversation.

We speak intelligent words.

We use appropriate gesture and movement.

And we keep a charming smile on our face.

*******

Sometimes, we speak to make people afraid.

We speak to make people forget the issues at hand.

We speak to restore peace and harmony.

We speak to maintain love and unity.

We speak to keep the family, the community, and the nation as one!

*******

We think about what we say.

We organize our thoughts.

We find the words before we speak.

We don’t want to speak to foolish people,

With foolish words,

About foolish things.

*******

We listen to others’ views.

We hear their brilliant ideas.

We learn their practical and useful tips and guides.

And we study their calm, cool, and compassion.

There are so much to learn,

In people's speeches!

We may be men of few words,

But we enjoy and learn to speak.

Oh, how I learn my speech!
