They can be the sound of a voice that sings
or just random scribbling...
For each person, words have a different meaning
Words can be praise,
Words can be invective;
Words can be simple,
Words can be creative;
Words can be trivial,
Words can catalyze change;
Words can be annoying,
Words can be soothing;
Words can be nothing,
Words can be everything:
Words give some things names
What do words mean to me?
They are more than just a language:
They can start and end ages
or simply make or break someone's day
Words keep my thoughts straight
-But most of all, words give names to the meanings I say
[Author's Thread Challenge: In any poetry format, tell what words mean to you. You can be as simple or as eloquent as you choose to be].
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."-Jeremiah 33:3, King James Version
"Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."-Psalm 119:105, New Living Translation
The present and future are not about who you were in the past-rather, they are about who you are and who you will become.
"Writing is truly glorious in that an author can put on paper the words that fear denies the voice to speak."-from my short story, "Set Free"
"...What you feel is what you are;
What you are is beautiful..."
-from "Slide" by the Goo Goo Dolls
Life surprises you! And I'm talking about the good stuff, because a bad surprise is not a surprise at all, it is just shock and horror. All of these good surprises, they are rewards, and the things that happen to remind you that you matter and that you should make yourself faithful so that you can be deserving of all of life's good surprises. Every wonderful surprise in life is a chance to flourish, so grab life by the horns-but don't ride, steer instead: life's horns are life's joystick. You can handle it, because your life's horns are made especially for you. If you don't give up, all of this will hold true and life will continue to surprise you.
