“The Power of Words” Poem of the Day (2023)

“The Power of Words”

By Ashley O’Hare

Kind spoken words

demand to be heard.

If you find it in your heart

to put them to use,

be positive they are true.

Emotions are not tools.

Feelings are not toys.

Do not break someone down-

never use pain for joy.

To lead someone on

is to lead them straight to heartbreak.

For the crucial human organ,

there is far too much at stake.

Be honest.

Be caring.

Fight to stay

on the right side.

We are all here

along for the ride

together in this life.
