People say actions speak louder than words

they say show me, don't tell me

but I don't know...

Sometimes actions are fake and words could've made a patch

sometimes it could be cured with a word

cemented and fermented 

repented or lamented 

confirmed not ignored 

light that feels right

a burst of sunshine scented sweeter than pine

...say the word and speak life

Confusing relationships, misunderstandings and lack of verbal validation inspired this poem.
