Page by page
Word by word,
Feel the precision
In every verse,
A tool to inspire
Which can cut like a knife,
Be impeccable with words
And use them right.
They can stir passion
Rile up hate,
Many times they are used the wrong way
And cause people so much hurt and pain,
Because they misunderstand
What it is you say.
Words are like poison
That you either eat or feed,
Words can condemn you or set you free,
Be precise and articulate in their use
For they can do bad as well as good.
People use them to inspire a cause
Other use them to convince us to fight their wars,
Many words are used to justify, unjustifiable laws.
Yet when you are impeccable with every word,
People listen and you will be heard
And you will have an audience you deserve,
Because they will hear the wisdom in every verse.
