Word easily said


An angry word slides so easily over ones lips

as though happening with mind of its own

naught  but after though given after out it slips


An angry word or many fly easily its true

as though arrow launched toward target

once the human bulls eye hit it reduces you


An angry word damages the trust to which one clings

as though no kind word following or before

overtake  the memory of hurtful word one flings


An angry word can be replaced with time and want

as the healing of many kindnesses offered

hit their mark taking away the pain that haunts


An angry word is useless nasty as the pain it brings

As weapons words bring bad and good

leaving in their wake a spirit that weeps or sings
