The purpose of a language is to communicate

Have you heard the same story
Communicated through different media
At the same time?
 
I did today,
And am amazed at the contrast
Between the media.
 
The dancer narrated the story
Through movements of hands and legs,
And through gestures and facial expressions;
 
While the singer narrated the story
Through words and tunes.
 
Both were doing a good job,
The question was:
Who was doing the better job?
 
They say,
“A picture is worth a thousand words”.
But what do you say
To a dynamic, living image
That goes straight to the heart?
That’s what the dancer achieved,
That the singer could not.
 
It made me think
About the reason
For the very existence of a language-
To communicate.
 
And led me to believe
That if everyone could express herself or himself
As well as the dancer did,
There is no need for languages.
 
Not to mention
That the world would be
Far less noisy!
