Tempest

words. so simple yet so strong;
can do some good but also harm.
can tear and slash and cut apart,
and shatter the unprotected heart.
can burn and break and stir up shit
and sink even the strongest ship.
can also heal with soothing balm
and bring the tempest to a calm.
pick carefully the words you choose
and think of all that you could lose.
when feeling rash, just take a breath
and to the tempest say, “Enough.”

    Again…no “really like” button so I will just have to settle with saying that here! I really like this one…

  2. I like the way this sounds when read aloud – the ‘s’ sound is great throughout. =)
