Words have the power beyond belief
They move us in ways without thought
Through song, poem and conversation
Put words together as we were taught.
Consonants and vowels in various strings
Those letters combine to make us feel
Bringing smiles, frowns and at times tears
Making memories and dreams become real.
We have so many words we don’t even use
But those we write can still stir up emotion
At times we don’t pick our words carefully
They cut rather than feel like soothing lotion.
But there are times words bring about an end
Saying a word before we feel it being acted on
When we can’t keep our own word, it is too late
Letting everything fall apart, in a word – it’s gone.
