Favorite Quote:
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”


Words, like grains of sand
Were pulled from land and dragged to sea
To struggle in the undercurrent
And drown there for eternity.
-
Words, like birds
Were trapped to rage and to engage
In the cage they call the mind
To seek the life they’ll never find.
-
Words, like ghosts
Were kept in dark, to breathe in dark
And lurk in dark,
To loiter where they’ll never start.
-
Words, like words, were kept as words.
Were heard although they were not heard.
To touch the power of the strong,
And those who heard their written song.


The author's comments:
I have written this to try to touch on how everybody can be reached by words - and how saying something is always better than not saying anything because people will always hear the song of a word.
