Action Speaks Louder than words

Action speaks louder than words
whether at home
or in office
action speaks louder than words...

A father preaching truth
but practicing falsehood
can never get his child
to be truthful...

a boss praising team work
but rewarding individual work
can never get his group
working as a team

Preaching core values
seldom practicing
is so much more frustrating
than an absence of  sweet talk

Its like waking
a sleeping man
and telling him
there's no food tonight!
yes, any time action speaks
louder than words...


  1. Quite true that. Though I did spoof proverbs and spoke of exactly the opposite in one of my posts :)

  2. interesting... need to go back & read your proverbs as well to get the other side of the picture..

  3. So true. Lovely poem, Rajeev.

  4. Thank you Saru.As a distinguished poet, your opinion matters a lot...
