I promised never to use words on others (286 words)
         I would just like to say that I do not dislike words, I love words. I write words all the time in journals that no one has ever seen. I think that it would be easy for someone to believe that I do not like words because very few people have ever heard me speak any or seen my writing. I don't dislike words, only the ways that people use them. I have watched many people use words for bad all my life and so few use them for good. I watched them poison people with words and make them slaves through them. I have watched words hurt so many people that, even though I have not sworn off words, I refuse to use them on other people. When I was a young girl I promised myself that I would never use words on other people, or towards other people, until someone had proven to me that words could do more good than bad. I had seen people use words for good, and they had power, but the ones for bad always held more. I promised that until I see someone use words that held more power for good than any for bad had ever wielded I would not use them myself. I wanted to use them so very much, but I had promised. Right now I am more hopeful than I have ever been that I will be able to speak. I have heard about them and their power, but until now I have not heard them myself. Today I would hear them myself, so now I stand patiently with the rest of the waiting crowd, hoping to be liberated from my decade long promise.
