Words

Words can inspire
And words can destroy.
Some make you happy
And some just annoy.
Words can hurt,
Or words can heal.
Words can comfort
Or conceal.
Words can be angry,
Bring you to tears,
Or words can be magical
Remembered for years.
Isn't it curious,
How words have this power,
To make you stand tall
Or bow down and cower.
So use your words wisely,
Keep a sweet voice,
You are the speaker,
You make the choice.

James 3:2 "For we all stumble in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well." Your poem echos the sentiments of this scripture. Well done.

The power of words is indisputable. They can bring joy or inflict pain! We always have to use them wisely! This is such a powerful piece full of wisdom and great advice for those who just say anything without thinking about possible consequences! A-7 in my books! Pandita

Every line in this wonderful poem speaks truth Elizabeth. Words can be a great gift or the most deadly weapon there is. Nicely expressed
