Humans are so dependent on one thing: language. Language is made of letters that form words and a string of words turn into sentences, and of course that’s an obvious thing.

How do I feel about words?

Words are made up of different dimensions, in which they can be divided into two – benign and lethal. Words move people, words can be equated to water. Water nourishes the earth, giving joy to its inhabitants. In the other end of the spectrum, water can demolish people and places without mercy.

Those are two things that our words do right?

We take our ability to use language for granted. If words are sacred, there are too many deceitful things that we say all the time, but then again, who are we? We are mere humans, and sometimes, we lack the impulse to say “stop, I don’t want to hurt people.”

Words are, so many people said, powerful. They can be swords and arrows aimed to hurt others. Rudyard Kipling said that, ‘words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” Why intoxicate people with displeasure then? The words we used should be changed to a medicine, a salve that can cover wounds and treat any awful situations. Words should give us happiness, knowledge.

You don’t need a large thesaurus to start giving out kind words to other people. The best things are said in a simple manner.
