SHIELD OF EXPRESSIVENESS

Words are my weapon of choice.
They are a means to give my thoughts a voice.
The same words that hurt can be
the same words that heal. For me
they act as a shield to protect
me from their gravity
by deflecting their weight.
All great super heroes are verbal zeroes
without an invincible way with words.
If you can’t talk yourself out of a fight,
you’ll be throwing punches all night.
