words are not just words
thoughts expressed
in thought
in speech
in action

some are full of thoughts
beginning before words
just to remain thoughts
never see the light of day, or...

others are voice
continuation of thought
of thoughts not thought
of thoughts thought, and finally...

then there are actions
continuation of voice and thought
from thoughts voiced
from thoughts not voiced, but…

the end of thought speech and action
is the action?
