And So It Is

Photo by Susan Robb

Words have power that the writer or speaker can only suspect

Often the connotations are too elusive to detect

Each person has their own frame of reference

Born from every experience not always governed by preference

To know how a word will be absorbed is only a guess

Will it cause understanding or will it cause stress?

So we choose our words with our best intentions

Hoping for tolerance, listening for impressions

Sometimes it’s best to drop the words with a smile and a shrug

And simply and clearly go instead with a hug
