In words we find hidden power:

persuasion wooing opinions like a sweet lover

spells casting magic across the gritty cloak of daylight

fiction sending us through portals into new worlds

In words we find abuse of power:

the lies we tell to paint people into corners

the blame we lay at the doorsteps of others

the shouting to silence dissent

In words there is liberation:

a clamor to call us to unity

a whisper to speak our own truth

a voice speaking an end to hatred ~ Caroline A. Slee
