Worthless Words?

Someone said that words are worthless.

"Give me action!"

What is life were a silent film? Every action overdone and exaggerated until we begged for those thoughtless syllables.
If words were worthless would mimes be kings? Or would we recognize that no matter how convincingly they pulled that "rope" it isn't really there?
Words are worthless? Words, our written and verbal histories, our treaties,  and our tombstones, no matter how declared or neglected affect our lives, our culture, and our world.
Words hurt and heal, lie and steal. But words aren't the only deceivers. Actions can be false.
Words can take one action and turn it into a hundred stories.
Words may be worthless
But I can afford them.
