How Can I Count! - Poem by Ali Adamson

Words make fresh
When words are flowers
Words define paths
When they are stars
Precious they are
In hopelessness
Words bring life

Words are far
When one wants more
Words are sunset
At some sea shore

When words are stones
Hit so hard
Words do tear
When they are sword
Words create darkness
When they are fear
Words are poison
Beat till death
Drop by drop

Words of people
Flow to my ear
Words are same
The same I hear
How can I know!
Who is sincere!

O Great God! !
A moment of breath is how much life!
How many times... death is coming with a breath inside!
How can I count! !

    Words are very useful, but we have be careful of how we use them.
    Even so, encouraging words can breathe life into lowly souls!

    Beautiful, words are the bricks that the world we making surround us, with love it make us stay in peace and with mad lines it change life to be crazily uneasy... And with words also we can convey what heart wanted to tell not only just keep the feeling inside... How beautiful world is because of great words, and they born from mind that think and heart that has the beauty... Lovely work Ali (Report) Reply

    Power of the words is enormous. That is what we see here. Life breath. Life ceases when it stops. We don't count how many times we breathe. Nice poem. (Report) Reply

    With simple words, you have managed to convey a depth of thought provoking images. I very much appreciate the invitation to read your work. I believe we should all strive to speak KINDER words to one another, in the spirit of better understanding not only our differences, but more importantly, our similarities! Well done....PEACE (Report) Reply

    Wonderful descriptive writing Ali. I liked 'words define paths when they are stars' 'words are sunset at some sea shore. The last stanza is excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed this poem. Top marks
