Mere Words

They are mere words for fun
On social and virtual media
We read, think and write regalia
Lots of verbose verses under the sun
To connect corners of the globe

They are ordinary words to dare
And a prompt appear on air
You can agree and he can disagree
For no right and no wrong tree
Will be planted for no cause

They are simple words not fight
Words that are said under light
Depicting flow that cannot bite
No deny you and I feel tight
From afar we nigh though far

They are ideas to break the ice
No fight among us, though tense
One goes, one comes and one hears
We started too many now we are two
And life feels an amusing mess

So open words work in public
For mouths are to speak
As ears are to hear quick
But no deaf and no dumb
As social concord fosters numb

Because there was a theme
That did not seem a beam
To light mean fire among friends
Words were not swords
In harmony, we argued words

Nice poem but there are no mere words as Jesus Christ the Lord has said, being the Word of God. Amen, take care.

Dear Ronald, hello! You are perfectly right and I know that. However, there was a good reason why this poem was penned. It came after having experienced something connected to it, which pushed me to write it. I like your comment though and that would be another context. Thank you and keep in touch, brother.

I don't do social media as my friend's daughter attempted suicide as a result of on line bullying - it is not 'mere words' if what people are saying about you is not true... so whilst social media can be fun it also has a darker side:-( hugs jan xx

Thank you for comment Jan. I am sorry to hear what has happened to your friend's daughter. There is a lot that happens on social media, and it goes from mere words to bullying as you have mentioned. Sometimes it goes beyond. I am penning another poem to complete this one, and I think I will include that point in it. Keep connected!
