Weapon Of Words - Poem by sandy nobody

the most powerful weapon
everyone has in their possession
it's not guns, knives, bombs
it is just words that are spoken

words can do a lot of damage
words can cause pain
bring on wars, hurt, death
drive you insane

words are very powerful
when use the wrong way
ruin lives, break up families
trust they can betray

words are not all bad
its the way they are used
when they cause hurt
words are abused

words can be good
they bring on healing
words help to understand
show how you are feeling

words can bring happiness
love and forgiveness
feelings of comfort
to all with or without illness

we all have this weapon
weapon of words
so please use it wisely
it will be felt, not only heard

    Hi Sandy, Nice poem. It is true we can get hurt by many things, but unkind words do sting over and over again. I know the saying 'sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me' really was just something said as a kid to try not and allow oneself to be hurt by meanness of other kids. But it really does matter what people say. You said it so well in your poem. A kind word reallly can make someones day! Sincerely, Connie Webb (Report) Reply
