They can cause the deepest hurts
and they can show the greatest love.
Sticks and stones may break bones
but words can crush the soul.
A few strong ones can build up or tear down.
They cause smiles and bitter blows.
Some people strip them of their meaning
while others weave them together creating beautiful art.
They will never wear out but use them well.
Strip them of their meaning and your voice is gone.
Let them slip for a moment and the damage cannot be repaired.
Words are powerful weapons.
Perhaps the strongest we have.
Use them wisely.
