Only Words

Saturday September 8, 2012


Only words? They're much, much more than "only."

Linking up today with Jenny Matlock for Saturday Centus, where the prompt is "It's only words, and words are all I have..."

Here's my offering:

It’s only words, and words are all I have…
A balm they are, oft to the soul a salve.

Words uplift and plead and seek and pray.
Amidst the dark, they lead to light and day.

An offering mere, a trifle it does seem
How can they help to ease today’s dire dream?

The love they lend, the kindness that they share
Brings healing, light, and wholeness laced with care.

NIcely done. I wish more people had your optimistic uplifting view of words... they are a powerful...powerfully good or powerfully bad, depending on how they are used. :)

Beautiful poem.

Words are powerful, aren't they? And that's why we bloggers/writers like them so much, I guess!
