The archers bow

Archers Bow.

Words may fly like arrows
From the deadly archers bow
They have a lot of power
‘Depends which way they go.
I’ve seen them make a whole crowd cry
{They could cause some poor soul to die}
Guard them well, let them spread joy
Just let them heal
But not destroy.

Oh go you easy writing friends
Be very careful, words offend!
For some folk, they be sensitive
My friends be careful what you give.
Responsibility be yours
For the arrows from your bow
So watch thee well the words you choose
For with them love must flow.

Oh, let your words be arrows
All dipped in harmony
Then left to seep in happiness
And the juice of liberty.
Then bend your bow, and let it go
These arrows be your song…
So let your arrows aim to heal
Then love may carry on.

    Very nice flow to your words here, which makes this poem a very enjoyable one! A great message here, as well. This poem made me think of Robin Hood, or Cupid, this would be a sweet poem for Valentines Day! Excellent work, Peter!
