Power in Words – poem

Power in Words

There is power in words.

There is power in what you say

And how you say it.

It matters how we treat others,

So it matters what is said.

They say ‘sticks & stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me,’

That is so far from the truth it’s not even funny.

Grant me sweet words to be kind.

Grant me wisdom to know when to speak and when not to.

Grant me peace in all I do

So I may be a reflection of light & grace.

Oh, may I be a sweet sound that brings goodness.

Drench me in love,

So I may be nothing but positive

So that it may all come from my heart.


This poem comes from a place within that knows what it’s like to feel like when others don’t care what they say and how they say things. Words can hurt & they can be misconstrued. There are definitely power in our words, don’t let anyone tell you different.  What we say and how we say it matters. How we treat others speaks volumes about ourselves. We should all aspire to want to be a source of light & love to others.
