A single phrase
can grasp your heart,
tieing a knot
that never parts.

A little phrase
can change your view,
obstruct visions
of what was true.

A whispered phrase
can linger on,
far past the time
when it is gone.

A simple phrase
can be complex,
what will come next.

A tiny phrase
can carry facts,
that influence
how someone acts.

A thoughtless phrase
can affect lives,
think of your words
so others thrive
