ah, words.

There are times when I am at a loss
& times when I’ve said too much,
times when I speak up
& times when it’s best to stay silent.

My words will heal
or hurt,
or discourage.
They can easily make a day
or ! just like that !

My words have ability to be the BEST
or the worst,
offer sweet hope,
or dismal defeat.

They are whispered, shouted,
sung or spat.
They can love
or hate,
be proud or jealous, treasured or shunned.

They will be left unspoken
or wished to be taken back
! Happy !
or sad,
subtle or obvious.

ah, words
those mighty, mighty words.

Note to Self :

Please. Choose. Wisely.
