Words


Words.
Inanimate objects.
Things that put letters together and form meaning.
They can't touch you,
or see you,
or hear you,
but that doesn't mean they can't hurt you.
They have the power to build a nation
and the power to burn it to the ground.
But sometimes it's not easy to see what words do
they can be used to put make someone sad
to cause someone pain
without touching them.
words can be wielded as a weapon
causing so much trauma
they can take someone's life.
Words can form love
or words can form hate.
It all depends on how YOU use them.
