The Weight of Words

People say that words carry weight

And we understand it's true

That words can be so heavy

Even when they're so few

It's their emotional pounds 

That weigh you down

That make you afraid

To say what you want to say

Words define you

Remind you of who you are

Where you come from 

And what you do

Who you interact with

And who you're relaxed with

But what if we were honest?

Didn't care who we're around



I believe you can because

Words have weight,

But your strength is great
