Words

Most have heard it said that words are powerful. It’s such a common phrase that most don’t even think about it until the words impact them in a profound way.

Sometimes the writer will never know the impact his or her words will have on the reader.

But the writer pens the words anyway

One by one the tapestry is woven

Piece by piece

Regardless if the words are ever read

The writer must write for the “What if”

What if she reads this and it is exactly what she needed to hear at that moment?

It’s a simple gesture that could change everything.

A sense of worth comes upon the heart that hears as the writers write the songs to the lyrics sung into their ears.

The cadence rings on as the words of hope rise from the ashes of despair.

The armies of writers raise their swords camouflaged as pencils meet the paper hearts.

The sounds of war are heard through the land of the forgotten, awakening the hearts of men once again as you inscribe the words.

“You have value.”

“Your life matters.”

“You are loved.”

“You are worth it.”

“You are not alone.”

“Your life has purpose.”

Old and young walk around the plains, hanging their heads as the words are placed in their hands.

The heart awakens yet once again.

Do they hear the armies?

Do they hear the songs of hope as the banners rise?

It’s your words that make a difference in their eyes through your hands.

  1. i really love that poem. It is like that in our own worlds we sit by the computer and the words come through us filling the pages. We pen them. Gently our faith and conviction imbibes the reader. Thank you for your post.
