Power of Words

Words used every day

Little or much to say

 

Used in positive ways

Conveying life’s essays

 

Mindful, powerful voices

Daily, humble choices

 

Impacting other lives

Celebrate with high fives

 

Disciplined purpose speaks

Positivity seeks

 

Sharing tender kindness

Truthful, without blindness

 

Careful to help and heal

Offering a square deal

 

Words paying it forward

True and straightforward

 

Thoughtful expressions said

Weaving with tender thread

 

Replace evil with good

Words plain and understood

 

Honest lyrics in song

Carried through all day long

 

Life unfolds from our text

Watchful where words go next

This poem was written several days before January 6, 2021.  Its intention was to praise and encourage the positive power of words.  The events taking place in Washington, DC on January 6 showed the negative power of words.  How will our future words speak?
