    Words can be uplifting
    Spirit clenching
    Heart wrenching
    Words can inspire
    desire to hurt others
    based on
    color
    religion
    sexual expression
    time of day
    Words can mean many things
    At different points in one's life
    Words can have a more powerful meaning
    Once discovery of true context is found
    Words are but one form of expression
    Sound, Reaction
    Complete the circle
    This endless chance to
    begin...again
    asking for forgivness for some--things you didnt mean to say
    and these are the points where mere words will never surfice
    Words have the power to heal---
    kill the soul of many passions
    Words are sometimes used prematurely
    Is it wrong if you remind me of an Angel
    of my past life
    But I cant call you that because I used to say that to my ex-wife
    Or perhaps the things that made me --ME
    are but a reflection
    in these words i choose to say
    Neva mind all that
    See how words can confuse your direction
    if one is not careful
    to use each syllable
    each drop of ink
    each peck at the keybord
    Wisely
    Pass on words that inspire, heal, teach, creates desire to Stand
    Truthfully
    We cant go further without acknowledgement of accomplishments
    Quote words of Mumia, Asha Bandele, Lynn-Harris, Mya, Shirley
    just to mention a few
    Surround your world with words of
    power
    success
    impression
    excellence
    And words will not only have power to heal, teach, inspire
    But it will embrace
    the nature of our people
    the rising of our youth
    the comfort of our elders
    The respect of our ancestors
    who faught for this thing called
    Freedom.

    Peace
