Words, words, words. What are they
but a convenient vehicle to send a message across?
That would argue the pragmatic.
But does that tell the whole story?
It would enquire the thinker.
Well-chosen words can lift you upwards,
and push you forward.
Or, in contrast, they can profoundly
mark your chest Zorro-like.
Coming out from the mouth,
prior to being properly thought about
they can eventually cause harm and damage
that several subsequent words
may have to struggle to fix.
Certain words may look like a feather
whilst others may resemble lead.
Empowering some words can be,
but crushing than a piledriver others may look like.
A final word I then leave you with.
From now on,
whatever word you might choose to use
bear in mind that through your head
it should better first go.
Because once released,
it’s no longer a mere vehicle
conveying the desired meaning
but it also tells a lot about you.
