A Few Words About Words...

Some words spur us on
Inspire us to live
Each moment
Like a gift,
So glad and kind

Some words drag us down
A millstone ‘round the neck
They choke the joy
From heart and soul
And mind

Would then, the words we speak
Seek to cheer the day
For none of us 
Can know
How many 
We have left
To say
