Words, big and small, of love and hate, are all around us
Words are but pictures of our thoughts, they astound us
Words in darkest of dark n brightest of bright surround us
Words to unleash its power, its charisma, rightfully found us.*
Words, tender, soft, honey-dipped win hearts – a trusted trick
Words, harsh, arrogant venom spitting-a molten lava, hot brick
Words, our ladder to fame and glory-our intellectual yardstick
Words, our fall from grace and wisdom -ruin of culture and ethics.
Words are, music, the beautiful song that letters sing
Words are, our cherished hope, the inspiration that life brings
Words are .the strong tools, a handy guide in all our dealings
Words are the roads, the avenues, that set world exploring.
Words are a link from creating history to unfurl the mystery
Words more often like a cradle swing us from joy to misery
Words echos our ideas and thoughts and flow like poetry
Words nurture our hopes, aspirations,dreams-weave a story.
The first word the child utters, the world rejoices in pleasure
The last word leaves a long trail behind on departure
From start to finish what are we without words, I wonder
Words are the very essence of life, to its POWER I surrender.
*As no other living beings need words to express themselves!
