VERBA TEMPERARI

Words have powerful permanence
As sublime expressions of love,
the weapons of bullies, degenerates,
or supernal truths from above.

Tattooed to our hearts, permeating our souls.
Indelibly etched ne'er deleted.
Source of endless pleasure, perpetual woes.
Breed conquerors or the defeated.

One cannot choose what in memory is saved.
If wisdom measures the words we select,
no need to explain the way we behaved
We’ll say nothing we have to regret.
