Words in the Hilt

If you think about it words are the most powerful tool we humans have at our disposal. Words are necessary, words are important. The words “I’m sorry” said in a certain way can mean a lot of difference to someone in need feeling down in that dump we all find ourselves in one way or another, suffocating stench drowning out reason. 581 more words
