A word can be a powerful tool,
make you look smart or a fool!
Three little words can fill your heart,
another three can tear it apart!
One word a life can be taken,
another locked up and forsaken!
They can feed a whole nation,
and even cause starvation!
Words are used in declaration of war,
with a stroke of a pen can end the horror!
They can bind two people together for life,
or cause each other unbearable strife!
Some have become rich with the use of words,
some with words that were overheard!
Always be careful of what you say,
words help or hurt people each day!
