Mere Words Hurt

Words be damned, they can hurt like hell, even the vacuous ones seem to carry hatred

Unaware minds, they feed on them, make them even more deplorable

You know, when darkness can be darker than you can imagine, the words can sound like messages from hell

Like an unlikely creativity at work, misguided by some apparitions, easy to fill in and distort them, hurt, more hurt

None would bother searching their origin, yet, they exist, even shape the ideas of today and tomorrow

I write, word by word, pleading, that words mean more than we can imagine, let words carry a meaningful, progressive legacy
