A word is a knife
That can claim one's life
Of either bitter or sweet
O'er joy and sorrow threat.
A word is a lethal poison
That can kill a million
Either friend or foe, clan or tribe
If one dares, no one survive.
A word is profound
Fathomably deep, like burial ground
In existence of the unknown
A word itself as a word is thrown.
Fear for word is a chaos hell
Calm for a word is peaceful to tell
Decide! For word is two,
Amidst life and death, which is true?
About the poem
Dont use hurtful words against others because we dont know what will happen if they've been hurt too much by our own words. Words can also cause chaos. So think before we speak. Spread love not hate.
