Words

Words

Words,
packets of
thought.
Bullets 
of meaning.
From mind
to mind 
transversed.
Greatest invention.
Without, others
never
to be.
Words
as weapons,
power to
lie, destroy.
Words 
as medicine,
power to 
heal, comfort.
Words 
as art,
power to
engage, captivate.
Words,
power to
mislead,
manipulate,
control.
Vigilant,
always vigilant
with the
power of
words.

Hi John..Words are a two edged sword....used to cut to pieces or spread love...but ends having a powerful effect....I hope to only use words for good for I have seen the devastation of words used to harm...and it is hard to recover from them....Honest poignant write. xo ;)
