When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then watch everyone wonder how you did it!

Knives usually cut physically
Words usually cut emotionally
Knives can scar emotionally
Words can impact physically
Knives can be sharpened
Words can be sharp
Knives can be used for good
Words can be used for good
Knives can be used for threatening
Words can threaten
Knives come in many shapes and sizes
Words come in many lengths
Knives can hurt accidently
Words can wound accidentally
Knives have many uses
Words have many uses
Knives can do so many things
Words can do so many things
But overall
All that you need to remember
Is that knives and words
Are more alike
Than most people think
