Just a word

The power of a word
to hold one man to ransom
yet set another free

Where a word
can bring healing to one
but make others bleed

Your words
chosen carefully
prepared for their début
and wrapping consequentially
the encore ‘fore adieu

Just a word for freedom
Just a word for life
Just a word for bondage in hell
where sword triumphs the knife

You’re a word
I’m absurd;
Believing what cannot be seen
and securing one word over another
so I don’t get lost
in the literary land of some other
rambling poet

The power of just one word
To hold one captive
To let one go
To amass the masses
We’ll never know.
