The War of Words

Updated on August 11, 2017


There are only two kinds of war

those of words, ones of actions

As lives are taken, words are lost

is the lesser of the two factions


Talk not to mean much of anything

when not backed by a true strength

Acts of war reflect truest intentions

exposing them in their total length


There are just never any clear winners

of all wars, these to be such a tragedy

Always are those to suffer a greater loss

despite all of the presented amnesty


One thing never seeming to matter at all

as the selfishness, of being served first

Ruthlessness of these few, of their desires

always spurs more, to bring on the worst



Wordiness signifies a real cowardliness

Some would rather threaten than to act

A characterizing of their own poor ability

Nothing but a blustering as to be exact


Every bold word they say, its confidence

Only backed by a greater figure's stance

The fear in standing alone much too great

A shame to rely upon these, a world's fate

      "Some would rather threaten than to act." True, but it makes me smile thinking of a big coward hiding behind angry words. Good job in this poem.
