The Art of Words

Words are magic4dec435fca431c676044403387e323aa[1]
Sounds to shiver the spine
Sooth a crying child
Provide guide for the mind

Words are weapons,
Tools to strike and parry
Deflect and Deliver
Cut down and compliment

Words are power
Skills to create and destroy
Friends and enemies
Influence a whole crowd

Words are music
Lyrics to love and hate
To Sing and To hear
Make sense of the world

Words are masks
Faces to hide and show
Inside and outside
Subterfuge and smile

Words are emotion
Greens from red and blue
Truth and Beauty
Prison of stray thought

Words are everything
Worlds of Magic and Weapons
Power and Music
Masks of all emotion
