36/2017: Worlds of Words

There are so many beautiful words in the world,
but you only give me the ones that show your ugly fear.

There are so many powerful words in the world,
but you only speak the ones that show your weakness.

There are so many kind words in the world,
but you only allow the ones that demean to escape your lips.

There are so many loving words in the world,
but you only surround yourself in the ones that breed hate.

There are so many words in the worlds,
maybe it is time I stopped listening to yours.
