This was written in my late teens


Words cause feelings,

for good or bad;

they can make you happy,

or can make you sad;

they can cause anxiety,

they can cause distrust;

they can also be seductive,

gushing with lust;

they can make you feel wanted,

they can make you feel shunned;

they can often quite shock you,

leaving you stunned.

Words have power,

the power can be abused;

their effect is determined,

by the words that you choose!

…choose carefully
