Your wonderful/inspiring poem reminds me of this verse by Emily Dickinson, "A word is dead when it is said some say, I say it just begins to live that day." As always, in simple words you deliver beautiful message in your poetry; thank you for sharing.
Wow! Your poem is so beautiful and you are very talented! I love the way you express yourself and your views on the power of words. The words we use have the power to harm or the power to heal. So, we should choose the words we use wisely. You have expressed this sentiment very well. You paint a lovely picture in one's mind. With each stanza, you address various issues in a person's life, which lead back to your main theme of word choices. This poem evokes many scenario images in the reader's mind. Thank you for sharing your God-given gifts with us.
This is a great presentation. I enjoyed reading it. Your rhymes are great, there's great imagery, and your message is strong. Your notes add even more info to the message. You are right. One's time on Earth is filled with many good and bad 'things.' Reading and writing about how one feels will help their mental stability. Thanks for sharing.
I pray you are doing well. Yes, I am an artist and your words flow on paper as smooth as oil paint. Words can change people's spirit for good or bad. Yes, words can inspire people's hopes. I believe taking a pen in hand and write to lift someone's spirit and hopes. This is a beautiful poem, sir. You are an awesome poet. Words are so powerful and you use them well in your poems. Thank you. Well-done. Happy writing:-)
