Mightier than the sword,

Is the written word…?

Changing the mind

Of thousands,

Affecting the thoughts,

Touching the hearts deeply…

Is the word carved!

Blood as its ink,

Feelings as the breath,

Emotions instilled


Imagination is etched!

Be aware of the power

A word has,

Which can tumble empires

And create unrest,                                                                       

Let its intensity,

Influence to bring peace…

To every soul of this world

Spreading consciousness …to heal and live.




  1. Loved it, but at times that power seems unnoticed or unused!

    • Very true! but we should always believe in it!

  2. aap naye avatr mein bahut sundar lag rahi ho.

    Aap ki kavita se bhu sundar

  3. Very well said, Soumya! :-D Eric

  4. Never fool around with a writer, he/ she gets you in writing! Good one Soumya!

  5. words make so many wonders
    very beautiful poem
    with regards

  6. Such is the power if words, indeed. Used to read Lenin and Marx, when I was 12 or something and when I look back now, I can see traces of everything that I have read till now in my persona. So yes, 25 years later, words and ideas can still change the world.

    There was this hindi poem (MAINE AESA KUCHH KAVIYON SE SUN RAKKHA THA) by Harivansh Rai Bachchan, which he wrote after the death of his wife. You might like it, of course, it has a narrower appeal…

    • Thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts in form of your words. I appreciate that you always connect with my poems.and yes! thank you for sharing the poem of the legendary poet.Shall go thru it !

  7. Good one!

    Happy Republic Day

    • Thank you Arindam and very much same to you!

  8. Through our words, we know another kind of immortality. For surely as long as one can read, we will remain. Beautiful, Soumyav. ~ Love ever, Bobbie

    • Iam glad Bobbie for your visit here and spreading your innocent love around through your words!

  9. My heart rejoices with every word of your poem, the beginning of love is to love the Lord, and through that debasement of self, we grow and mature, for love conquers all, and those who believe their love will be a conduit that multiplies this love endless for it is a self-less love that asks for no return, for we have already yreceived our blessing, the love of our Lord…who could ask for anything more!. Beautiful poem Soumyav! My sister every poem you pen is so much better than the previous! Your spirit and heart blossom like beautiful Orchids or lotuses. God bless dear sister and much love always!

    • Its a blessing when I get to read such words in form of wishes and appreciation from you! someone so close to the god himself can be such kind and generous in thoughts. Thanks for your graceful words Wendell!

  10. Very evocative of the might of words Soumya!

  11. Yes, when it’s written, it goes down in history. Though…I believe it’s pretty much with the said words – if memory is not that bad. :) Wonderful, my dear.

    • Yes dear! if memory isn’t bad,still then somewhere they do have an impact in our mind forever.

  12. Well said, Soumya.. Was wondering what happened.. didn’t see you around 2-3 days I believe.. :-)

    • Thank you dear! its touching to see that you noticed my absence..wasn’t well ,had hectic schedules during weekend here and got more exhausted. you know its always 24 hrs job for a mother!

      • Of course.. Can imagine being busy.. It gets difficult to accommodate everything in 24 hrs. Good to have you back.. :-)

  13. A pen carries amazing power, it can be a nectar of piece and also the poison of unrest. What else the most powerful entities in the world – ‘Religions’ also survive and thrive on words.

    You brought that out nicely. Very well written!

    • Thank you so much Meenakshi to share your thoughts and also to decipher the meaning correctly!

  14. Indeed words have such power….I like the way you have enforced it.
