Used to yell,
used to sing,
used to complain,
used to explain.

Used to say, "I love you,"
used to say, "I hate you,"
used to retell stories,
used to recall memories.

Used to describe the weather,
used to help with confusion,
used to keep people safe,
used to cause mass destruction.

Used to say goodbyes,
used to pray for peace,
used to comfort others,
used to inspire others.

Words are powerful things,
and people should remember
more often that they can do great,
and terrible, life altering
things with them.
