A single word can change everything

A harsh word can end a lifetime relationship

A sweet word can create one

An angry word can destroy a life’s work

A kind word can undo a mountain of hostility

An unyielding word can start a war

A reconciling word can prevent one

Every word creates the world into which you are about to step

At that moment, all other options are lost

The trajectory is set

There is no going back

Consequence ripples endlessly into the future

And no other future is possible

All with a word

“In the beginning was the Word”

The fool speaks for the moment

The Sage speaks for eternity
