Words - Poem by Charles Garcia

A Thing said, a remark, or conversation
comfort or an uplifting thought,
expression of love, can bring on hate,

Words, simple and honest, can bring hurt
or sorrow, could be threatening or worse,
cannot take back tomorrow.

Words can meld two lovers together,
an association to last forever if
spoken gently from the heart.

words can separate us forever
out of contex from the start
if not chosen wisely, can bend a
broken heart.

Words can bring music to the ears,
if we take the time to listen, always
there sweet melodys to linger on.

words bring love and everlasting
beauty to last for years perhaps
forever if you so desire.

    words to the deaf,
    draws defeat,
    words to the death,
    aborts.
