WHAT WORDS CAN DO
Words and their meanings are written upon paper, In books, they live,
They can be put together to become stories, poems, plays, and movies.
Words can be formed Into sentences so that we may understand one another,
A cry for help, that morning hello or gossip that travels so far and fast.
Words can be the enemy, make others believe false things about another,
Words can hurt If In fact we choose to let them, after all they are only words.
Words can set In motion a chain reaction of anger and misunderstanding,
Words with lies attached are a most dangerous way to say things, listen.
What words can do Is destroy lives, families, friends, and nations,
Build walls that take lifetimes to finally crumble, at times too late.
Words can Indeed heal hearts, they begin lives between two that love,
What words can do, how they’re used, a gift that at times Is abused.
