The power of words, is awesome to behold.
They build and they break, they furl and they fold.
A simple word, empowers a man,
Or throws his hopes, his dreams in the can.
Such simple devices, such miniscule tools,
But used correct, can elevate fools.
Just letters on page? It does not seem so,
Do not simply think, your words nowhere go.
Everything said, by someone’s received,
For better or worse, in thought and in deed.
Regardless of all, the things you have heard,
Do not disregard, the weight of your words.
