Sometimes the hardest thing to find
Is a way to express what is on your mind
Are words always enough to get across
Feelings ranging from love to loss?
Words come across in different ways
Depending on the type of phrase
They say things in a different way
When we laugh than when we pray.
The same word we speak or write
Can give us joy and also fright
Words can paint pictures for all to see
Or only pictures a thousands words to be?
Words whether written or spoke
Can make us rich or make us broke
They can bring us hapiness or pain
They can even control our brain.
Words of any size have so much power
Yes or no make the strongest cower
That is why as we go through each day
We must be careful in what we say.
Whether with our pen or with our voice
We are the only ones that make the choice
To use words to help and to heal
Or to express anger that we may feel.
It is in this choice we have to find
Ways in which to be respectful, compassionate and kind
Fore as you think of the words in your head
Remember someone could say them to you instead.
