Lullaby Spell

What if words could kill?

A simple sentence could cause agony,

Destruction,

World hunger.

If you could whisper a phrase

That would fix your wounds,

Change your meanings,

Change everything.

A picture wouldn't be worth

A thousand words,

But a word

Worth a thousand pictures.

Every lullaby

Becomes a sleeping spell

Every paragraph

A different purpose

Good or bad.

What if words could raise the dead?

If you could cry a song

To your lost love

That would bring them back

Think of the complications

The tragedies

And the miracles

What if words were beings

With thoughts

And feelings?

You can't control them

Or choose which ones

To speak.

What a world it would be

Without control

Of your own words

What if words were real?
