With Words We Can Be Insulting - Poem by Francis Duggan

Words can be so very hurtful we hurt others when crude things to them we say
I should know I've hurt people with words in karma for that I will pay
Some times we can hurt people's feelings without even meaning to
Amazing the power of the written or the spoken word the damage a few words can do.

Words can be so very dangerous and they can cause so much offence
When they are used to cause insult against them there's only one defence
And those are words of retaliation that often to violence does lead
A word can be a hurtful weapon to hatred bad words are the seed.

With words we can be insulting and with words we can be rude
Kind words can make people happy and people with words can be crude
With our words we ought to be careful with our words friends we lose and we win
'Tis said the pen is mightier than the sword though the sword has killed more than the pen.
