Words Words Words

Oh you shapers of words
You have the power
To touch the reader's soul.
Tread lightly
Lest you break the reader's heart.

    A lovely and succint piece Alison. the theme of words is always something I find attractive, but it takes a certain skill to make it interesting. This certainly has that.

    'Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me, ' IS WRONG! What we should live by is 'If you don't have anything good to say- Don't say it at all! ' As Allison has said in this fine poem, we should all tread lightly! This poem is great because as tiny as it is, it is massive in thought. Great job! A ten.

    Mmmmm, so true, it happens - but that kind of heartbreak is healing. Thanks for this. Love to you! Esther

    Thank you little girl, if my words bend a heart or two it's intentional, but harmless.
