They are such an everyday thing

A mundane thing

A simple thing

But they are so powerful

Have you considered the power of words

The Bible

The Constitution

Speeches for President

They are all words

Just words

But they change

The way people

See the world

They form you

They shape you

They touch you

The horrify you

They are a way of solidifying anything

And everything


With the power of words

Comes the responsibility to use them

Correctly with feeling

To change the world

To remember

And not abuse them


To form them

On the tip of a tongue

To the bend of a page

To extract the pieces of people they had forgotten
