They told us to watch the words,
The words that came out of our mouths,
But what happens when some words
Are abused by many and thrown about.
To convince others of things they don’t mean,
And whether the words are quiet or loud,
Can change the way we interpret the words
That float around above heads like clouds.
If our words can form a dangerous lie,
Perhaps words deserve less attention then,
For something that many cannot deny,
A person’s actions more accurately define them.
Do not mistake me, words have power,
The power to hurt and the power to heal,
Coming from your enemy or significant other,
Know to differentiate the fake from the real.
