step up to the mark .

by tentoes

Nothing . No rhyme. Only the words .
The power of our rhetoric . Stands on its own.
We , as poets , respond . And have a responsibility .
To rhetoric and the words .

Some say . They have no power .
But a few can start a war .
Divide a nation . Kill millions .
And most of all deceive .

Our words can bring hope and change .
Maybe for the better .
But they can also bring .
Misunderstandings . Devastation . And hurt .

So master your words .
Not just on a page .
When we converse and convey .
We create more energy .

By what we produce and say .
By being light ,love and spirit .
Our words carry our consciousness .
Be kind in you words and honest .

Be careful what you let go of .
And be aware of what and where you store the rest .
Words are a marvellous medium .
And we not only make . But step up to the mark .
