Words can cage and change and try to define, but it's up to us to draw those lines.
The ending of a sentence can be the ending of a soul.
Words are the biggest weapon this world will ever know.
Kind words, sweet words, words that create doors through which love can fly,
Hate words, ugly words, words that make us cry,
They all define humanity in a most honest way.
We make new words and new lines in an attempt to define what we see, are, and could be.
Punished are many for speaking the words that they were taught,
Screaming it out even though when they're caught
Just try to speak up in defiance,
but no,
the violence!
We created words and we complain they do us no justice
They end lives
They start wars
The cause tears
Words are our biggest fear.
We don't want to hear them.
Words and us, one in the same.
