Poetry: Words by Kathy Stemke
Every word has a certain destiny.
Some, dark and cancerous, destroy you.
Others, thieves, rob your serenity.
Carefully calculated, deceptive words
do harm, righteous on the outside,
inside they have a heart of fear.
Filter words of separation and elitism,
words that divide nations and people.
prejudice always brings death.
God's eternal words have a destiny.
they soften the dry, stony places.
They heal your innermost hurts and fears.
Peaceful words bring tranquility.
Encouraging words bring confidence.
Merciful words bring forgiveness.
Stop each word before it leaves your lips,
inspect it, replace it if necessary,
then release it to its certain destiny!
