W for Words

Potent like poison,
Can bite, seep through, make a mark, spread like wild fire.

Empty like air,
Can swoosh through people without so much as a tremor.

When used right,
Convince, confuse, jolt entire worlds.

When used as fillers,
Get ignored like the ad in a YouTube video.

Action following them,
Are difficult to combat, let alone ignore.

All words and no actions,
Are difficult to digest, let alone revel in.

Words, words,
Short, long, simple, complex,
Meaningful, nonsensical, deep, shallow,
Not just a bunch of letters but
A whole load of emotions and attitudes.

P. S. This post is the twenty third in the A-Z blogging challenge series for April.
