    Yes words are really powerful. Nothing is sharper than words. If you should compare it with a knife, most times when you get cut by a knife, it time it heal and left no traces, but with words, it's stored in the back of the mind and possible to return to the surface anytime. Well done, kel.

    So few words and yet they say so much. The tongue is definately a very powerful weapon and can inflict much pain. Nicely done.
