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
