Microsoft Word is is a proprietary word processing application from Microsoft. It is not a generic software classification. It is not free.

You appear to want a free word processing application that can read and write Microsoft Word documents. There are several:
  • Text Edit (already installed on your Mac)
  • OpenOffice.org
  • NeoOffice (Java-based version of OpenOffice.org)
Pages, the word processing application in the iWork suite, is not free.
