Way of the Mantis

Words can wound
or kill,
much like a sword,
but for as long as you keep away
from the blade,
the sword is no more
no less
than a smooth piece
of metal.
Someone who knows
the destructive potential
of the sword
does not wield it lightly,
and someone who knows
the nature of words
does not employ them
indifferently.
