The Use Of Words - Poem by Chante Keyter

A vocabulary of words can be useful…
Words can describe emotions
Words can express actions…
Words can be powerful, so be careful
What you say, where you say it,
How you use it and what you mean by it…

But words can be harmful to one's soul as well
If at work, at a friend, a loved one…
No matter what or whom it is…
When you speak without thinking
Your negative words that are spoken
Can do more harm than what you might have thought…
Clearly you thoughts were far from your mind in that terrible moment…
Just harmful words flowing like a river into the ocean…

Love, Laughter, and Happiness…
Emotions that bring joy to one's heart…
All words of expressing your feelings
To another, but can also be applied to one self…
Words of amazement that can only bring out
The good and the better within…

Words of that bring confusion…
Well that there is too…
But by looking into the mirror
At oneself and whipping away the steam
That blurs your vision…
Confused you will be no longer
And soon you'll know what to do…

Descriptions is another way
For words to be used…
From describing things we do not understand
As best we can…
Even thought it might take some time to one day truly fully understand…
