Words

Never has it dawned on me,
How a single word could change the course of someone’s life,
Either for better, or for worse.

Never has it dawned on me,

How a single word could change the course of someone’s life,

Either for better, or for worse. 

One word could enrapture a person,

Or, it could make their world come crashing down.
One word.

That’s all it takes to ruin someone. 

One word. 

That’s all it takes to fix someone. 

One word.

That’s all it takes to unshackle a mind,

Whose manacles seek to destroy it.

One word.

That’s all it takes to bind a soul,

Which is soaring through life.
Choose the words you speak,

You could make,

Or, break someone.
