Talk is cheap

 

Talk is cheap
and still
you don't say much

just enough
to make your goals

Some are useful
then you talk
but not too much

Some are useless
then you talk
less than less

Empathy makes words
you don't say much
empathy makes action
you do not do

Talk is cheap
and still
you are a bore

Talk is cheap
and still
you don't say much

Postscript: I guess the above is a poem of sorts. If I ever wrote anything such previously in my life, it was in youthful sturm und drang. I also, like most people, have dabbled in limericks, haiku and Christmas gift rhymes. When my children were small, I often made up rhymes on the spot, some quite long and not too bad, if I may say so. But the above is, I guess, my Hello World in way of non-rhymed poetry. That is, a text with a lot of space in it. I wrote it a week or two ago, inspired by real life. If you wanna remix it, go ahead.
