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.
