The sword is mighty
The pen mightier still.
Though blades can injure
Words can kill.
Words are the preferred method of killing these days, because everyone gets away with it easily v.v

Continuation:

sword dulling every day
Words forever and always
sword solves few problems
pen, millions in a day
So what blades can draw blood
words can draw from the mind
sword coming to the end used no more 
pen lives on further more.
I hope u like my continuation! 😃

A espada é poderosa;
A caneta ainda mais.
Embora lâminas possam ferir,
Palavras podem matar.

LOVED your poem so much that I took some minutes figuring out how to best translate it to Portuguese (my main language) =D

people, please. stop being oh so very critical.

this is a moving piece of poetry and you have to stop looking at it so literally. poetry is a way of expressing emotion, using many literature devices such as metaphors, similes, etc. this piece is supposed to symbolize how, yes, a punch or a small slash not deadly enough can hurt  you can emotionally get over it. words, however- words are what can sometimes hurt you the most. unlike wounds, sometimes, the effects of another's words can't heal; hence 'words can kill'. they can linger on forever if said right.

it's a reminder to check yourself and realize what you say can 'kill' another and hurt them more than a mere scratch or bruise or weapon; so be careful of what you say.

Please, forgive my cynicism, but the blade is the one that kills. An argument could be made with stronger evidence for words being the ones that injure, and blades being the ones that kill. Words stick with you, they damage the spirit irrevocably, but you can still live with them. A sword chopping you in half? Not so much. Words can be survived easier, but not endured, for they are long slow poisons, and blades are forgiving cold killers. Your poem has meaning, but switching the words gives it more.

I think that's a pretty nitpicky way to look at it x"D By that logic a bullet can't kill - And I feel like that's pushing it a little bit.

A bullet literally can't kill though. It needs a humongous force behind it to even be lethal, and to get that it needs gunpowder, a firing mechanism, and a guy to pull the trigger. Is the bullet really the killer here? No, the guy is. Guns don't kill people. People kill people.

But it's a device designed to kill.  

If you want to be totally nitpicky about it (like mentioned above) - then yes, a person is what kills another person by using the gun.
But that doesn't make a gun any less damaging or dangerous, especially when it is designed to do that.

I just feel like that's an overly nitpicky view. x'D
