See all the pretty little letters, waiting to be formed into words.
Those words can praise or criticize, according to how they are unfurled.
The tormentor creates the words that cause pain and take away joy.
But the one who seeks to encourage forms words that do not destroy.
Words like “You are priceless” are so needed and are full of worth.
They are words that uplift us, and we are experiencing a dearth.
But if all would form words of love and not use many words of hate
Peace would prevail among us, and the divisions would surely abate.
