Words can steal, and nearly kill, but words can heal;
Words can turn an ugly flight into cowardly flight.
Words skilled, filled with love can rebuild the broken;
Words chilled with hate leave the forlorn unfulfilled.
Words can make the dour more sour by the hour;
Words are power that tower over life rife with pain.
Words can be strong enough to turn the wrong into song;
Words can turn the world upside-down or right-side up.
Words abate, relate, satiate, debate and even create;
Words to speak or write, meek and mild or with ill-will.

Words are yours; you are your words.

  1. Applause! I had once written a small poem along a similar idea, though on more bare bones than the exposition you have made on a study of the meaning of words. Something to learn from. Wonderfully done!!

  2. Indeed powerful words, written in powerful words; wow !
    I always say to people who lost a love one:
    Words can’t take away the pain, but they can hopefully offer comfort and support.
