How are we choosing our words today?
They pierce like a knife
They bring so much strife
They swarm overhead
They seek to find where to make their bed
They can soothe a hurting soul
They can calm and console
They can mend a broken heart
They can reconcile worlds far a part
They can bring clarity to confusion
They can bring healing to retribution
They can create life where there’s been only death
They can be so sweet to take away the breath
Once spoken, they cannot be erased
Once heard, they cannot be debased
Once tasted on the tongue, they can never be suppressed.
Once received within the spirit, they can only be confessed.
