Words -
good, evil
peace and rage. Words -
spoken in hateful
tones divide, destroy
encouraging ignorance.
Words- spoken with temperance grow
understanding, foster tolerance. 
Rhetoric that cannot be revoked - words...

    Enjoyed reading your great work this morning ....In the "Bible", it states the tongue is most powerful thing and can't be tamed like a horse can be tamed..Of course, those words come off the tongue and from the mind onto the page..It can be used for good or evil..Sara
