words ride gently on the breeze.
Filling the air with echoes
of what life may become.
Words of encouragement
and sometimes of despair.
Meanings wrapped up in terms
that impact you deeply for good or ill.
Words that penetrate the heart
and play with your emotions.
Powerful words that change
the very course of your life.
So be careful how you handle them
because they may take you on roads
that lead you to great joy or great sorrow.
