Words….soft as a breeze to woo someone you love
Words… kind and gentle when you care
Words…. firm and strong when you believe
Words…. harsh when you are upset.
Many situations, many tones.
But the listener one….. one with a heart and feelings too,
Willing to believe, willing to care
Willing to let go of the harshness, too
but unable to forget the hurt that came along.
Maybe it is true….
harsh words are a sword
leaving a mark where they strike.
