Words - Poem by Dee Corpolongo

Words are like weapons
they can tear you apart
they can bring so much joy
other times, break a heart

They should always be thought
about before being said
How a person may feel
upon it being read

I know I'm not blameless
saying things that would hurt
and I apologize to others
for all that it's worth

I hope that God hears me
and helps me make it right
Any pain I've ever caused
may they forgive me tonight.

    Ah yes, here we find a treasure so rare, the wise council of grace and mercy. Of such are the hallmarks of redemptive love. Inspired words are these. (Report)Reply

    A so true poem, saying something good to someone can stay with them for a life time,
    as can saying something bad, but if you say something bad you can always try make it right again.
    A really fantastic poem.

    A simple and straightforward write, but so full of wisdom and good advice. Words can be an evil weapon or a soothing elixir. Excellent write, well penned, flows well. (Report)Reply
