Favorite Quote:
"Everybody dies. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will." - Chuck Palahniuk

It seems as though
no one knows the power
of their words.
Language is spilled into the air
like it's importance is temporary,
just useable.
But you'll never know
how many wounds you've opened
with something as meaningless
as the sound
escaping your lips.

The author's comments:
I noticed in class one day that I could tell some people were talking just to talk. It made me contemplate how that is common with so many people, especially people my age, and it made me appreciate the art of writing even more seriously. Language and using the right words are so important; I'm in love with poetry and the effect it gives you when someone really uses the right words together to dig into your soul. I thought about how many times something people say--or something I say-- could be so simple, yet carry so much meaning and emotion behind it. It's more than just words.
