words spoken can leave bullet holes

words can be a decision between life and death

yet we take them for granted

we use them to hurt

we use them to destroy

we use them to kill

kill the little ounce of hope or joy

we may or may not have left

they break us down

they build us up

then do it all over again

but behind the cycle

is something greater

something bigger
