The Power of Words


How shall I convey what I choose to say?
To whom do I direct my address?
Should I stack syllables in smooth, suave sways
Or make my point in the simplest of ways
For ideas I’m eager to express?

The power to persuade or the power to deal
A most thoughtful matter – to be sure,
Power to inflict pain or power to heal
More about me do my words reveal ~
For words have the power to endure.

(I’m on vacation this week, so I’ll be posting poetry from the archives for a few days.  Happy creating!)
