The Power of Words

The most dangerous weapon in this world,
Is not the gun, knife or sward,
It is the human mind,
Thought and the word.
Nothing cuts more deeply,
Without leaving a mark,
Than the words of hatred,
Openly spoken freely.
Words can be dramatic,
They can also be subtle,
Destroying people in a swipe,
Or breaking them over a lifetime.
So be cautious with your words,
And choose them wisely,
Because are not always aware,
How powerful they can be.
