Yes, they are creative, edifying, if rightly used vice versa. Nice thought!

Yes, I do agree with you, Babatunde Aremu. Words can edify those who read. Let us continue to use words to inspire and edify us and others who read and hear our words.

Its like what A Tribe Called Quest said, the word is the herb deep as Bob Marley, so much can come out of words, the bad and the good, the power of the pen can be a great medicine, Words can unite us or conquer us, fantastic stuff.

A beautiful poem written with insight. I had to pause and reflect for a while after reading this poem. Lovely. Thanks for sharing. Please have a look at my poem #409 MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
