Wordplay

While typing this poem,
I began to realize
That words can mean happiness,
Or they can mean demise.

And if we can change a thought
Using simple words and letters,
Then can we change a certain person
For the good and better?

I can make you feel the weather,
Like the change from winter to spring,
Where chilly and blue and piercing cold
Turns into green with living things.

And I can make you feel emotions
That you’ve never felt before
Because you’ve never felt this angry,
And you don’t know what for.

In the end, words are just thoughts,
And thoughts are just floating words;
And when we write poems,
We bring them down to earth.
