Words

The words mean so much and we just toss them out 
Like they are nothing, not listening for whether we 
Bring pain or peace, hope or sorrow, love or hate
We can't keep tossing them around carelessly 
Each one is of value to another, each one can bring
Life or death, it is all in how we plant it, a decision
To be thoughtful instead of reckless, so pay attention
To the words we share because they reflect 
What we value in our own hearts
