“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”

― Dalai Lama XIV

Amazing things,
Aren’t they?

I mean,
Look around,
They’re everywhere!

There are ones like
And pulchritudinous.

Words nobody knows,
Or ever uses,
Instead we choose ones such as,
Or freak.

Words can be powerful,
Words can kill,
And many have.

So before you use words again,
Take a moment,
And see if you could find a better one,
Make a person smile,
Or just give you a really confused look.
Cause anything is better than the burning,
Aching stings that you could create so easily.

The words we say have effects on others we wouldn't expect, both negative and positive. So take the chance to make someones day.

I like this! It's written well, with good puncuation and grammar, and has an excellent point to it!
