Say something kind,
say something nice.
Before you open your mouth
you better think twice.

Words are like weapons,
they hurt and they scar.
They can't be retracted
no matter who you are.

Apologies are nice,
we hear them a lot
but the hurtful words stay,
they can't be forgot.

No need to say sorry
if you think before talking
words that can wound,
hurtful and shocking.

Check yourself first
before you say something mean
because words are weapons 
leaving scars unseen.

    Words indeed are powerful weapons. They cut deeper than the sharpest knife, and they pierce the soul, sometimes never leaving. Fine poem Francine, and a big thank you for honoring my poem 'Sent' in your contest, James :)
