My essay is written to reflect on and discuss the power of words. Words are a powerful force, both for good and for bad. Words can uplift and inspire, but they can also wound and injure. My essay discusses the power that words have and the responsibility that comes with using them. It is important for writers and poets to learn and perfect their use, and it is important for all of us, especially those who use social media and the internet, to be aware of the effect we can create and the consequences of our words.
