Words

Us poets

We use words...

We try to use words...

for good.

To enlighten

to educate

to share 

to create

and inspire.

Others

do not use words

so positively.

Some use words

very negatively.

To hurt,

to wound,

to destroy.

They target

individuals

that they think

aren't as good,

as cool 

as them,

for one reason 

or another.

Maybe they

were made fun of

as kids,

as children

and they lash out

as teenagers, 

as adults.

Does that make it right?

Does that make it okay?

Should they get a free pass,

should we let it slide?

No.

NO

NO!

But we must not stoop 

to their level.

We must find our way,

our POSITIVE way

to combat them

with our

WORDS.
