  1. Words indeed do have power. No matter how young or old we are, they can cut through us like a katana. I liked very much the rhythm of this and rhymes as well as the words put together.

  2. Oh, speech does have power, doesn’t it? I guess somewhere along the line one has to learn NOT to say “nice boobs.” LOL. Enjoyed the last stanza. The word “yes” sometimes is the most powerful word of all! No more words needed. Smiles.

  3. the Zen notion that thought is inert in the total scheme of things, that we must speak those thoughts, verbalize them so that the sound of it, like radio waves can travel to the universe, has always struck me as awesome. So I recite, perform, record all my poems, demand conversation while around the taciturn, conduct family discussions about life, encourage all forms of talk at the dinner table. See what your poem did to me?

  5. The Power of Speech and Faith: Speak to The Mountain

    For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says [Mark 11:23, Matthew 21:21, Matthew 17:20, Luke 17:6].
