Words

Words—
Beautiful as a mother’s kiss,
A clear sky with cotton-candy clouds,
A lark's cheerful melody,
A flower blooming,
A vibrant sunset,
A lover’s scent,
A sweet love song,
A baby kitten,
A newborn baby,
A friend’s hug,
A wide smile,
A playful child,
An act of kindness,
God’s son;
His gift to mankind.

Words—
Destructive as a raging fire,
An avenging killer,
Rebellion against the law,
Death’s evil threat,
The spread of diseases,
Kids snatched from homes,
Genocide,
The Holocaust,
9/11,
Virginia Tech Massacre,
Hurricane Katrina,
War in Iraq,
AIDS in Africa,
The work of sin upon mankind.
