Words are power.
They can be a double edged sword
cruel and deadly, leaving painful scars.
They can be a cool summer breeze
calming and serene, bringing peace and understanding.
Words are life.
God spoke the world into being.
With His words we were created.
Words are knowledge.
They can teach lessons,
convey ideas,
fill the mind.
Words are expression.
They represent who we are.
We are known by what we say.
We are remembered by what is written.
Words are art.
Bold and meaningful they fill an empty page.
Bright and colorful they paint the canvas of our lives.
