Slippery words,
drop off thick skin,
fall off like rain
while showing your sins.

Attacking words,
provoking wars,
invoke my laugh,
crumble once ignored.

Exposing words
reveals your soul.
Keep my head high
exercise self-control.

Menacing words,
keep you so stuck,
wishing ill will,
gives you the worst luck.

Deceptive words,
hiding your face.
I look away,
my life fills with grace.

Entangled words
ties you in knots,
setting me free,
I fly to my spot

– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy
