Your words

Your words can go

Flying haphazard in one ear and out the other,

Your words can stay

Lodged in a heart to grow a newer and bigger meaning,

Your words can live

Long after time erases your footprint on these fateful shores,

Your words can die

Unwritten, unsaid like dry seeds turning to dust.

So they tell you:

Be cautious and be carefree,

Be passionate and be wise.

Be sharp and be soft,

Be truthful and be kind.

Don’t let them hurt you but

Do let them love you.
