Speak To Me Words.

Words are hurtful; words are full;

Words are kind; words are empty;

Words are wounding; words are flattering;

Words label; words identify, and categorise

Words sort; words classify, and organise

Words arrange; words position, and orchestrate

Words compose, words devise, and formulate

Words convey, words express, and define
