Words are incantations, catalysts
Loaded guns
Their power is boundless
Second to none

They set forces in motion
Start and stop wars
They are evocative
Emotive, impactful and more

What you’re trying to convey
May be misconstrued
Units of language are they
Often misunderstood

Lost in translation
Can they sometimes get
When discharged they are potent
With the potential to be ill met

Use them we must
If we want to communicate
But select them with care
Before allowing them to escape

Once released into the ether
All control is lost
What you intended to convey
May get star-crossed

So speak from the heart
Write from a place of love
Then you can be sure
Their impact will be good
