A Journey Through Life with Words

Fri, 04/08/2016 - 05:55 -- nnava20

I cannot live without words.

An amalgamation of letters

That we form to be heard

They are a creation and a treasure.

The dictionary is our map on this journey

We search and we wander

Though at times it grows eerie

The quest will stretch longer.

The treasure can be beautifully melodic,

Playing over and over like a lullaby

Or corrupted and toxic

As is the life we oversimplify.

Go on life's long expedition.

It is through words that we complete this mission.

This poem is about: 
Me
