There Are No Words

extensive vocabulary only used when needed,
to shock the perception of the prideful world you created,
simple...i hear...larger i see,
and you wouldn't dare bow your intellect you hide behind to be,
to push away the heart...the complexity of your words,
a pocket sized webster...you carry...i'm sure,
share the knowledge becomes used as a weapon,
to intimidate the heart to feel less in expression,
the fear of the damage you've already seen,
you hide behind your intellect, or so it seems,
oh, untouchable heart...when will you learn???,
in the simplicity of loves hands without using big words,
tricking yourself into believing others mentality must match yours,
"you could learn alot from a dummy"...or so i've heard,
so as i stand speechless, humbled and unheard,
just always remember....i can understand the heart of your words.

    This is a really well written perception of the pride that people consider when they feel their intelligence superior to others. Pride is a sin-- God rewards the humble. Welcome to P/Soup
