Words - Poem by Mark Normand

Our words are not just chatter.
A bunch of useless sounds.
Our words were meant to matter.
To be kind, not to boss people around.
Spoken words are real and living.
They are able to tear people down.
Still words can be kind and forgiving.
We are in charge of their sound.
We would all do well just to listen.
And watch every word that we say.
Because somewhere they say it's written.
All of our words will be judged one day.
