Baby's Breath

Doubt ye not,
The power of words,

For they can build up,
Or they can desrtoy.

Like firey arrows,
From the tongue they fly-

They can give life,
Or cause one to die.

They be not something,
With which to toy-

Words can wrought sorrow,
Or bless one with joy,

Words can bring one
Sweet memories,
or painfu panging of regret.

So speak ye not,
words of death,
But rather words
which be sweet-

Baby's breath.

    Very good poem, much better than the other two poems of the day.

    A couple of suggestions to make it even better.

    FIERY is misspelled in line five.
    PAINFUL is misspelled in line 16.

    Great work, and congratulations on Poem of the Day! (Report) Reply
