Someone very close to me lost their 18 yr old son last year to a drug overdose. He wrote a whole book of poems detailing how he felt. I really liked this one.

Words Unspoken

There is a wise adage explaining,

how the pen is mightier than the sword,

where words are more powerful,

than other violent means of influence.

Words do carry tremendous weight,

and much responsibility to those who wield them.

However, I suggest there are even threats,

much heavier than words,

either vocal or written,

and those are the burdens,

... of words left unspoken.

The pain of leaving things unsaid,

even if unintentional,

hurts with pain from a depth so deep,

that even death is unable to reconcile.

Rational cannot solve this guilt,

it's blind delusion over common sense.

The power of words unspoken,

leaves those grieving insurmountably crushed,

under a burden not even memories can alleviate.

So though the pen may yield more might,

the words left unspoken carry more weight.

Fires will be kindled to testify that two and two make four. Swords will be drawn to prove that leaves are green in summer.”

G.K. Chesterton
