"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
~Michael Jordan

They can tear apart,
they can draw together
They can burn, freeze, sting
They can blossom, electrify, save a life.
They are beautiful and terrifying,
gorgeous and treacherous,
causing tears for two completely different reasons.
Words are complicated and wonderfully simple.
A word is a verbal smile, a ray of sunshine,
a bright spring blossom and a sparkling raindrop.
It can kill; it can hurt,
like fire licking life from the soul.
Words are simply…words.
It all depends on how you use them.
