The power of words

The power of words

People often forget the power of words. This world revolves around the power of words. Be they on paper, spoken or digitally, words are a driving force behind most things. The aspect I wanted to address with this spoken word poem was the power of words in a day to day situation. In any relationship there are ups and downs. Moments filled with joy and happiness and others filled with strife and anger.

Words have the tendency to fly out a bit faster and bit more “spicy” when spoken in anger. Because you want to react in a way that hurts the other party in an equal measure to how you have been hurt. The power of words is that when you say them they are out there and they don’t disappear even after your emotions have calmed down.

Never forget The power of words.

“I hate you” or “I hope you die” are the ones that when thrown out have no way of making their way back into nothingness. Teenagers often forget this fact and throw these words around as if they are nothing more than empty words that have no impact. But I am here to tell you that your words do have an impact. Sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you. That’s a concept a lot of people try to cling to. Knowing full well that it’s not true.

Bullying and spewing hatred is something that lasts a lot longer than a hit to the face. Pain fades over time but emotional scars tend to fester the longer you leave them. A beautiful world is one where people respect the power of their own words. And take the consequences of their words as they are instead of their own romantic view of it.
