I am grateful to my friend, Parry, for these beautiful and wise words of poetry. Parry is a Muslim woman who lives in Kuwait.
Of all weapons, the most lethal a potent poison, extremely fatal more dangerous than guns or swords
Such is the power held by words.
Words can blind and they can deceive, entangle the mind, webs of lies weave,
till truth merges with fiction’s blight and is lost forever to reason and sight.
Fiery words spewed, used to propogate cloud the thoughts, spread such hate,
Inciting passions tear minds asunder, leading to wars, genocide and murder.
So be on your guard, beware of words,
Not all is true that’s spoken and heard.
