Weigh each word on the scale of perfection -

Only perfection -

Settle for no less.

Bind each word together with a silver thread

Upon which could hang the very weight of nations.

Choose thoughtfully

And wind your way wisely through the pitfalls of ease.

The path to them is quickly worn and not soon forgotten.

Paint with your words -

Your words -

The picture in your head that begs to be released.

Create music

With the cadence,

The rise and fall, the melody of your words.

But -

This is all, and above all:


Write as if every sentence you craft

Is on its way to change the world.

Because who knows?

Maybe one day

It will.
