Real Words Are Not In Vain - Poem by christine ogutu

A time like this

words may be thorns

waiting to prick the opponent

some may heal wounds

others may be death

in all: words are not in vain

vain words are not real

the wise do not argue

yet they reason with us

fools believe they are wise

but then: the weakest

at times the wise are fools

either way,

we got to exist

fools or no fools

the world is a genius circle

all words got functions

use them wisely

yield to others

make a point in real words.
