Some More on Words


I wish to speak some more on words
As moron words I've found
can as easily harm the shepherd's herds
as Gadarian swine were drowned

Words are things that we create
And tools with which we build
We are the kings of our own fate
By the chosen words we willed

A single word can lift a soul
Another one can kill
One will help to reach a goal
And one can crush the will

Choose each word more carefully
To bless, to help, to heal
Once spoken, I say fearfully
The pain or joy is real
