Words

“Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.”

Buddha

With power to hurt and power to heal

Words that were made to express what we feel

Can drastically change the course of history

Can enslave men, can  set them free

Spoken or written, words have might

To conquer nations without a fight

Timely mentioned, a single word can 

Unleash a storm among strong men

By domino effect, ripples it may create

Serve as the start of a heated debate

While human life is transient, variable

Powerful words are immortal, immutable

Preserved just the way they were transcribed

Their essence the same as initially described

Words can also transform broken souls

Words can encourage one to attain newer goals

But words are like arrows, once shot in the air

Cannot come back, so handle them with care.
