If I Wanted To

If I wanted to, I could
Tear you down with my words
I could shatter your reputation
With a single blow to your lies

If I wanted to, I could
Ruin everything for you
But I'm not so small.

I realize
That perhaps you are human
And perhaps so am I
Maybe I'm a little wrong too
Like you
I will be silent
As people talk about you
Saying how marvelous you are
Although I don't think you near as marvelous
I could, after all, be wrong.

    Unlike he if I wanted two
    soft are your words they are nice.
    From the heart one I hear,
    like the stars in the night clouds are clear.
    Lift me up, never down,
    thoughts one are taught and
    pure are the eyes to the soul.....iip (Report) Reply
