Were they not words that created the world?
But for words, our world would
be as silent as the grave
and darkness would still hover over the deep where the nights are not dark enough
How would the vision be written
for others to run with it?
How would we be able to
break or build
cajole or deter
bless or curse?

Thoughts and dreams
prayers and anguish
-all would be powerless
without words
and only laughter and screams
would remain
