I have 12 parts
Each part has even more parts
I help you get things done
What I help with may not actually exist

What am I?
She/Her

People who say “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” don’t understand how words can be stones, hard and sharp-edged and dangerous and capable of doing so much more harm than anything physical.

@Gravy Aw, now I feel kinda guilty :)

Alone, I am harmless
Together with my brethren, I can be the harbinger of destruction
I bring death to some, and life to all
Many pray for me, yet curse my appearance
And others love my song.

What am I?

Right answer, wrong interpretation :P "Brethren" simply refers to other raindrops; a single raindrop won't do much harm, but a lot of rain causes flash flooding, landslides etc.

Next Riddle

I aid and protect others but no one helps me.
I'm not allowed to hit the sack before I kick the bucket.
When my wounds go bigger, I only see something worse and not a healer.
