I said the word “hate” and broke a heart.
I said the word “love” and healed another.
I said the word “impossible” and destroyed a dream.
I said the word “can” and inspired another.
I said the word “destroy” and caused a man to cower.
I said the word “create” and gave another courage.
Words have such power. Why do so many of us forget this? If we stepped back and listened to what we say to another, would we feel proud?
Or would we see how much damage we have caused?
Maybe if we stopped for a second, and picked this word instead of that one, we could change the spirit of the world.
Just a thought. Expressed with words.
