Words Can

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Words can slice and dice,

bleed and break,

smooth and schmooze,

and conscience take.


They can bruise delude,

be devout or crude,

in affect intrude,

or a path ensue.


Words can win the heart,

repel in hate,

they can agree to disagree,

or in fear abate.


Words are weapons,

a song to the heart,

a message given,

or a fact impart.


They can tear a soul,

heal a life,

bring love closer,

ease the pain of strife.


What we say,

what we express,

has power and influence,

and in life redress.


So it is well we know,

what affect me make,

with simple words,

for all our sake.
