How some can be so Touched,
by the words we write here every day,
Fascinates Me to no end,
with the messages they relay.

Some respond with,
replies of anger and hate.
Some with words of wisdom,
or Kind Words They do relate.

The fact that such Power,
can be given just by Text.
Leaves Me with an amazement,
A Little bit perplexed.

It is one thing to actually Hear someone,
telling of events of the Day.
To get a feeing of their mood,
Usually better in that way.

The words up on Our Monitors,
Look so Cold and Black.
The true emotions behind them,
sometimes, no usually lack.

But to gain an actual feeling,
from someone's written word,
is just as good it seems sometimes,
as Hearing their Spoken word.

Some Intentions seem so clear,
Their meanings seem so cold.
But the real thoughts of the writer,
are just that They are being bold.

No warnings given They,
lash out in a tyrade.
Of Harsh words and statements,
It's like Their own Parade.

Some don't seem to Care,
about hurting Others Feelings.
Like They have none of Their own,
And is their way of Dealing.

Dealing with Their own lack of,
Warmth and Softer Emotions.
Tearing Someone down,
Seems to be Their Healing Potion.

I prefer to Read the,
Words of Fun and Kindness.
They make Me happier,
than those of Hate and Stress.

So I try to remember,
each time that I write,
Not to make One Feel Bad,
But to Better Their Day or Night!


I was inspired, almost immediately, by a comment to My last Poem entered here by the Kind Member, Witness2008, where She shared a Heartfelt Sentiment to Me. She was evidently Touched through some of My writing's here at ATS. That In and Of Itself, Is one of the Best Compliments I have Ever received!!!
It makes Me Truly realize the Power of Our Written Language!!
It makes Me want to continue what I am doing here.
THIS Poem may Not have ever been written if it weren't for Her Reply to Me......

Thank You Witness2008!!!

How true that a written word on a screen can hide/convey so much and sometimes not quite what we wanted to say.

Freedom of speech is a powerful thing and we have to be responsible about how we use it. We also have to be mindful of other people so that it is not used to incite unhelpful or even destructive feelings/actions.

We can achieve so much with sharing words.

Gotta check the rest out now

Ummm...This is such a wonderful message...It makes me think how sometimes the intent of what a person says on the internet can be so 180 from how it's perceived by another...I was once talking to someone on another site...I was describing how education, parenting and environment can sometimes leave one full of the nonsense that society and living leave inside...and how if we try we can empty that all out...in an attempt to have a wiser perspective...

He took it to mean that I was telling him he was full of crap...he got seriously offended...it took a while for me to explain to him that I only meant for him to let go of the detritus...the things that hold one back...and he would have room for growth...

I used the analogy that you cant fill a glass with wine if it's already full of dirt...

Anyhow...I really liked this Poem...thank you for that...

Yep! I hear Ya on how our words can be taken totally wrong. Has happened to me too. A Lot of the time if I am going to write something that will most likely be taken wrong, I'd say something like, "Now don't take this the wrong way, as I agree with what you are saying, BUT, ..........if you do it this way.......i would change that to........." Ya know what I mean?
Set up the possible bad, with some good...... Something like that! LOL!!!

This here is part of what YarLanZey wrote to me above in this Thread, : "How true that a written word on a screen can hide/convey so much and sometimes not quite what we wanted to say." That's it too. All in a NutShell!

From You above, : ".......can sometimes leave one full of the nonsense that society and living leave inside...and how if we try we can empty that all out...in an attempt to have a wiser perspective..."

I love That! It's perfect!!!
