Words are powerful;
We should use it with care that,
All who reads may find peace.

Words are powerful;
The jester's tongue is of deceive,
All who hears it are fooled.

Words are powerful;
It can melt a heart of stone,
Your enemies turn a friend.

Man can tame animals,
But they cannot tame their tongue;
Words are powerful man should know.

Encourage thy friend;
With words of kindness and see,
Words are thy friend too.

Break the false critics,
They use words of truth with lies;
Beware the jester's lies.

Words are as sharp as a blade;
Beautiful to behold, yet still makes a wound
For those unwary

Judge thy fellows on
Account of the jester's falsehood;
Know these and live by the truth

Tongue that is of many,
Sing can thee and seduce can thee
let all who hears know than.

    We must be careful with the words we chose. They can cut like a knife even if they are not meant to... choose them wisely! A good write!
