arrows
once shot,
cannot be stopped
arrows
soaring through the air at light speeds
arrows
hurting those not previously intended
there is aim, yet so little control sometimes.
arrows


words
once spoken
cannot be stopped
words
they travel fast
words
they can hurt those who we hadn't intended
sometimes we have to have more control
words

words and arrows
so alike
our nevi'im knew it
and so do we
words can be spoken
muttered
whispered
shouted and yelled
they can also be written
typed
texted
words are not just what we speak with our mouth
words are the things we use our fingers to express too
and they can hurt
piercing through the hardest hearts
they build and they break
sticks and stones, they hurt
words damage far beneath the surface

chat rooms
texts
the anonymity
freedom to express our feelings
be careful how you speak
how you use the precious words you hold
you never know who you can hurt, and how deeply you can hurt them
