use your words

it’s so easy to say things in the heat of the moment
not caring how the words tumble out
words that carry more than they mean to
words that hurt, maim, and cast doubt

for words have power more than we know
they’ve helped create civilizations and have torn them down too
words have led people to the depths of utter despair
but they’ve also helped so many pull through

it isn’t a difficult task to ask for, really,
to use our words to bring out the good
it’s not easy but it’s worth a try every single day
and maybe some day, we can all be understood.

Got something to say? Spill the beans!
