Some people do know how powerful words are;
some people choose to still misuse them in abuse;
Rudely obtuse with loose jokes to jest and poke,
all in good fun, laugh at the pun, but some run
inside as sensitivity abides in some of us;
and with a little poking, even tender joking,
one could be deeply hurting someone.
I admit my own wrong in this,
having a weakness showing kindness
to those a little different than I;
Now realizing it’s no lie, every girl and guy
should only ever hear kind words,
bonding friendships – building worlds.
Speak words like you’re beautiful, or handsome; incredible!;
instead of words like you’re fat, ugly and terrible.
For words played as toys, become deadly weapons that destroy,
peoples friendships, relationships, hopes, dreams and joys.
