Words can be power
Power of good
Power of power
Power to liberate
Power to enslave
Power to educate
Power to inform
Power to misinform
Power to spread disinformation

So use your words carefully
Be choosy of what words you use
Think before you use words
A word carelessly used can course harm
While yet used well can course so much good

Reading this I reflected on something an older and very much wiser colleague asked me one time. "Have you ever seen a man eating fish"? Of course he deliberately asked me in a monotone voice. The answer was either "Yes, in a local restaurant" or, "no, there is no such species." How we use words DOES have such an effect if we fail to understand the context or meaning.

Thank you for sharing this piece with us

I have thought about words while writing poetry.You are so right.Words can even enslave a person.Good work Ken.Very beautifully written.
