Truth is light

and life...

Decipet is darkness

and death.

Words are life and death...

which voice is heard

within our breath.

The tongue,

extensions of the heart...

a blade as sharp

and quick,

a sharpened prick

that prods and gaods.

The words, a sword

to pointed end...

fiercest enemy, dearest friend...

the spirits sword

a spirits word...

Some said to cut,

some cut to heal,

some said to bless,

some cut to kill.

In the beginning

was the word.
