How Can I Count!

Rating: 4.7

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

Words are precious like our breathe. We cannot count either of them.When we loose we realise its worth. Beautiful write. Loved the ink.

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

Civilization's wisdom is contained in words.Words may be soft or hard, may create hope or fear.We can use words for the best of mankind or misuse them.So it is said - -Watch your words. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful poem.

So much wisdom here, Ali. I am reminded that one of the most devastating things a person can face is no words....silence, neglect, perhaps the greatest abuse. In some cases ugly words are the basis for a better reality. So imagine the power of positive words.? A great poem, Ali. (Report)

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