The Condition of Words

by LaFleurBlanche<3


The Condition of Words

Scritch, scratch

Forming the words

Scritch, scratch

They all seem to flow

~

The sliding and sticking

Of ink on paper

So satisfying

So soothing

So easing of the mind and heart

My soul feels at rest

When I right my thoughts

My feelings

My heart

With ink and paper

~

With every stroke

With every symbol and character

Forms a letter

Which forms a word

Which forms a phrase

Which becomes a sentence

That later develops into a paragraph

That then holds a message

~

With this message

We can evoke and inspire more

A feeling

An emotion

A thought

An idea

A meaning

A purpose

~

Words hold meaning

What do your words mean?

It’s not worth the effort to say them

If they don’t have a genuine meaning or purpose

But if they do,

Don’t hesitate to say them

Or you might lose your opportunity

~

The opportunity to give a message

A feeling

An emotion

A thought

An idea

A meaning

A purpose!

You could give someone the feeling of worth and equality

The emotions of happiness and belonging

The thought that they may actually be loved and enjoyed

That their gifts and talents have meaning and worth

That they are priceless and hold so much worth

That they are not a mistake or a faux

But they have meaning and a purpose

~

One paragraph

One sentence

One phrase

One word

Could change everything

One paragraph

Could give a person a reason

One sentence

Could end a war

One phrase

Could restore even the most broken relationships

One word

Could save a life

~

Don’t wait

Or it could be too late.



Words. They are such a precious gift. We more often than not, we take them for granted. In this world our words have become something, God never really intended them to be. A weapon. A way of hurting someone and punishing them. But God intended words to be a way of loving someone else. To love him. Words were meant to give love, kindness, and worship. Not hate, deceit, and pain.

So use your words the way they were made to be used. Don’t bring yourself down to the rest of the worlds level. Be different. Rise up against the crowd. This world is broken. Don’t break yourself to please it.

Hello, I'm Horisun, here to review your poem!
Let me just say, I really like this. The message is grand, and the word choice is wonderful. I loved how this poem was built. (Not sure if that was the right phrase, but I hope you know what I mean)
One thing that I did want to point out is that you said "Right" instead of "Write"
Other than that minor nitpick, this is a really nice poem that will be receiving a like!
Keep on writing, and have a great day!

Hi @LaFleurBlanche<3 I am here to do a review on your lovely poem here. So lets get right into it shell we.
So this poem was very nice to read. Every line flows with the last. It blends to gather so well. It just sounds true. I can see everything happening, with the way you are describing it. I really felt connected to the hole thing. As I read I start to just hear the sounds of the words being written as I read it.
I also really liked that this was long. And I could just feel more of the words rushing into me. You have just put such a meaning into every word in the poem. So much understanding to it all. The last bit I felt was just so true. And very, very strong and heart felt with wisdom. I hope you are okay though reading this it sounds like you mite have gone though somethings? I loved this poem. And I really want to hear others that you have wrote.

So that is all I can say about this. So keep up the great poem writing. This was lovely to read I in joyed it a lot.

Have A Great Day/Night
