These Sharp Instruments

Regina Puckett


Words can inspire

They can set us on fire

They can take us to the highest heights

They can take us on fanciful flights

They can drop us to our lowest low

They can teach us things we didn’t know

They can rip out our hearts from our chest

They can make us feel like we’re the best

They can make us wish for a quick death

They can sound so sweet they can steal our breath

So why do we throw them around as if they had no power

These sharp instruments that can cover us like a thunder shower
