Like some water from a spout:
Flowing, pouring, splashing all
Free to have them, as they fall..
Without measure, without frame
Words come out and call a name:
Every person, everywhere
You can claim them, even share..
Like some butter on some bread
They are tastier when they spread
Sweetening life, relieving hurt
Words can lift, remove all dirt
Say them softly from your mind
Sweetest comforts for our kind
Lightly seasoned, or all out:
Words can help relieve all doubt
But, like good things; they can sour..
If, not careful, can devour
Broken people, strong ones too
Guard your words whatever you do...
