The power of words
is nothing but great
they can lift the heart to soar
or tear it down and make it weak
inspire a nation
or cause a disasterous war
words can have many meanings
depending on how they are said
so say what you mean
don't cause unnecessary hardships
and mean what you say
not just talking to talk
but back it up!
too many people talk so much
but say nothing at all
so afraid of speaking their mind
and yet longing for change
change that they themselves
could bring about
if only they would stand up tall
and speak out!

This is amazing and completely true! People really must speak their mind more often.... Some people have lot's of great things to say, but they're to nervous to speak. So nervous that they're not even themselves. Great work, great clarity as mentioned above, and fantastic voice! Keep writing!
