Words

Words can be a flaming sword
Or a tiny, mournful whine.

Words can bring us freedom
Or clamp us into line.

Words can sing with silken voice
Or sting like sharpened ice.

Words can hold the gold of truth
Or mask a thousand lies.

Words can mortar prison bricks
Or open blinded eyes.

Words are just a tool we use
Or a tool that uses us.

Words will not deceive you
When loving is your ear.

Words are but a package
We open to make clear.

Words can be very powerful...they can calm your fears or tear you down.  You words in this poem are powerful to my friend..I believe you have gotten your point accross wonderfully!

Thank you all for the feedback. I think many frequently forget the incredible power of the written, as well as the spoken word. Still, words are only what we make of them. Here at Passions we seem to use them beautifully, wisely, with  fire and with soul seaching truth. Thanks again. Chris

Full of truth, Chris! Yes, I think many do not realize the power of the tongue! Great poem!
