Lent-Day 5

What's a word worth?

garbage, really
we throw them out
with candy wrappers and old tires
in the magnitude of our
oh-so-important lives

we toss them around
careless as to their power
to heal
to resurrect
to hurt
to kill

words have an ability
we never quite believe
the substance they carry
is something we just can't see

but one's word is
they measure a person

some words remain.
as do those that speak them.
some promises are still unbroken.

"I will never forsake you."
