Some people say they’re just words
Like words aren’t perfectly formed arrows
Shot from lips, pens and fingertips
As if only sticks, stones and bullets are capable of inflicting pain.
They think words don’t bruise souls or tear down self-esteem.
They probably don’t even read since they can only see “just words.”
Words form sentences, breathe life into characters, and create worlds
Words lay the cornerstone of communication
Tell your story, pour out your feelings all over this world cause
The world needs more storytellers. More imagination. More words.
Some people don’t respect the power of words until they are directed towards them.
