They fall like the axe, easily condemning
The recipient to hell, like a piercing scream
In midnight scenes they ring loud and
Clear, meaning something different to each person
Who hears them.

They have the ability to sustain hearts, or make
Them beat a little faster with joy, a few
Simple words can change a day, making it better in
One way or so much worse in another.

We use them with no care, really we should be
More considerate lest we hurt without meaning.
Everyone has felt the rough edge of words, been
Pierced through the chest unwittingly and yet
We never change, our words can still cause far too
Much pain.
