Words - Poem by Richelle Stutz

Words are the things said
when everything else seems to be so dead
You wake up in silence, yet planning out a sentence
to be used for your introduction of the new morning
And to be said to anyone else without warning

When in love
Words are the things that trip, skip, and sing along with us
Words have expressions
Just as your face

Without words where would we be
Wrapped up in our own hostility
Begging, crying, with common enemies

Take a day with no play
Not doing anything that gives you a say
People do it all the time
But now the problem is yours and not mine

Words can make others loose their own
Plated with chrome
Words can cause pain
Making people go insane

Words define life, love, and laughter...

words are just the start of disaster.
