Words

Words fall out of my mouth so fast,
Words that sting, words that sooth
Are my words good?
Do they heal-
Or do they hurt?

Words are bad,
Words are good.

They can not be put in a box,
Other than one labeled-
What else?
Words

Whether they sting,
Whether they sooth,

They fall out of your mouth,
Sometimes I do not think you realize,
That they sting,
Instead of sooth

Sometimes they heal,
And then I am glad
Not only because they heal,
But because someone listens still

All is not lost,
Words will always heal

They may seem to be doing more hurt,
But someone will realize,
That they should change,
And heal

Instead of hurt
