Choose Wisely…

“Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.”

Proverbs 18:21


my words can be a valentine

or a death sentence

shall I recite poetry

or vote to convict

will you receive these gifts

or tempt the fates

my mouth can launch ships

or stir up hurricanes

shall I speak in lyrics

or whisper in warnings

my lips can be cupid’s bow

or poisonous arrows

shall I aim

for the heart

or the head

my confessions can be legacies

or lasting tragedies

shall I christen you

or compose a eulogy

my musings can be musical

or the marching at a funeral

will you hear the symphony

or the song of a siren

choose wisely

that version of me

may be the last thing

you see
