Words, how you strike like a sword,
Leaving imprints that can lift you,
Or subject you to distraught.
Words, how you create wisdom,
Leaving minds to decipher,
Between what’s right and what is wrong,
Your insightful deliverance,
Gives one much insight and thought,
And marks the world with your inked reverence to knowledge.
Words, when in whisper,
Delivers a soulful voice,
They define love,
They define your inner self,
They are the silent rebukers of turbulence within.
I read a few remarkable, touching poetry today, and this poem came to be.
How powerful are words, that if un-uttered, can drown a world in abject misery – shobana
