Words

         Words



Words make verses and rhymes. 
Expressions of my mind
have been with me throughout time.

Rhyme and reasoning
Words with grammatical seasoning.
They can hurt you
or nurture you.

My words can be uplifting
life shifting,
even spiteful,	
some needing decrypting.

They can be soul searching 
thought provoking and
soul cleaning
Put your thinking cap on and decipher
my meaning.

The words can touch your heart
And hit that just right spot, 
to make you think without a blink
and giving a wink
to the person who used the ink
to print the words
you’ve just heard
too open your soul
to help you gain or loose control.

Vowels, consonants making words and phrases.
Some may garner praises.
Some eloquent, some raw, some poised some powerful
and some hilariously crazy
may make the sleep push up daisies.

Words on war, words on peace
Words of the decease.
Words of suffrage 
from women wanting passage
to be an individual.
Words of bravery endurances
Words challenging occurrences.
Words about our favorite people
Words about people worshiping under the pointed steeple
Words about people and faraway places.
Words about different races.

The words are sometimes the same.
Some bring thoughts of possibility
Some may bring shame
Still expressions of caring and sharing
Some soul searching and soul bearing.	

So read my subjects, adjectives, pronouns and verbs,
and formulate your own expressive words.
Give access to your thoughts and feelings, 
because words can be very appealing and revealing.
