To most of us words are just a bunch of little somethings that we string together and scatter around. But words are the most enchanted and/or deadliest power trusted to mankind. It has the power to make you or break you. We sometimes just expect them to brush past someone like a summer breeze, but more often than not, our words turn out to be like arrows and knives that lodge deep into their hearts.
But hey its up to us to see if the words we direct at someone becomes part of their growth or it poisons the very growth just mentioned. Words can induce a smile or a tear, a frown or bloom love. Words can guide or ruin, can nurture or destroy. But all it takes is a single word.
As millions have said before, a word is truly mightier than the sword. I realized that words also have the tendency to mutate into meaning something else, as it travels the distance between our lips and someones' ears. So think, and rethink before you plan to use words to someone, even if its as tiny as a little hi or as long as can be.
“But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling, like dew, upon a thought produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions think.”
― George Gordon Byron
