Words

Easy like the wind
Dry as we may be;
Piercing the bubble of hypocrisy
We rule the world.

They say 'think before you speak'
And also classify us as weak;
But are the actions that strong
To send us back to square one?

Building bridges- yes, we can!
Speaking the same language- no, we can't!
But if you try
You can use us to get along.

Use us to fail emotionally;
Use us to fail psychologically;
But use us wisely too
For we can damage you literally.

A fair-weather friend speaks more,
A dear one so, speaks no more.
Which is true? A task to identify
When the world is lost in a world of its own!
