Sometimes Sharp, Sometimes Soft,
They can be blunt, sometimes even scoffed.
Raise you up and make you feel aloft.

A word, can have a hundred meanings,
to a hundred different beings.
They can get you married, or end you up in countless flings.

They can twist and turn,
they can ease your pain or make it burn.
They can leave you happy or leave you to mourn.

A word can be short or long.
they can be made to be a weapon or into a song.
they can push you away or make you feel like you truely belong.

A word can have little meaning, or be as powerfull enough to destroy the world.
They can put your life at ease or leave you in a blur swirled.
Maybe that is how they are suppose to be? Painting a picture that is twirled and whirled.
