Words are imporant,

Flashy or dull,

However the meaning changes,

With the way the person behaves,

Without an ear to listen,

They are only sound in a world of many,

Without a mind to comprehend,

They are only marks made of ink on paper,

Without eyes to see,

They are an illusion,


They hold all of the power and none,

They cause misery and strife,

Love and life,

Misfortune and pain,

Luck and gain,


It's up to the author to choose their path,

Make them last,

Make them change minds,

Make them alter feelings,

Or even change actions.


Right, left,

Up, down,

Forward or back,

Make a choice,

Give it power,

Take a stand
