Of Words

So much is placed
 in the written word,
 of life, dreams, fantasy 
and gibberish.
 
We read such written 
words daily, but do we 
take the time to understand
 them and the mind of the
 writer behind them?
 
From childhood we are
 taught to express through
 our words, yet so much
 is not understood.
 
The mind is complex,
 it never rests until the
 end when words will
 no more transcend.
 
When the writer has gone,
 will his words left behind be 
of life, dreams, fantasy 
or gibberish? We leave you
 to decide!
