Words


When words are spoken,
Only the good ones are taken;
By the mind that is weak
And the heart that is fake.


I wonder if words are said
To make one afraid;
Or to express a thought
That peace is sought.


Those words left unsaid
Can be thoughts of love unspread;
That may bring gladness
To a heart full of sadness.


Though words don't come easy
Especially when one feels queasy;
They don't form or rewind
Until the soul unwind.


So let the words be spoken,
With love as a token.
Let them be said
And all will be spared.

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
