The Magic of Words


Words make friends
Words make enemies

Words hurt
Words act like balm

Words convey
Words comfort

Words coalesce hearts
Words give bliss and peace

Words encourage
Words inspire

Words express love
Words suppress feelings

Words cause rage
Words make one sage

Words echo sense
Words clothe our naked heart

Words cause pleasantness
Words cause relationship

Words transduce thoughts
Words give form to experience, understanding and insight

Then

Why should we
Be economical and miserly
In using words that cause joy and exhilaration

Let us not exhibit poverty
In expressing our love and affection and Selves

For

Words are
Silence, peace, bliss-

Incarnated and manifested,
In an enchanting and delightful way
