Hello, Welcome,
Imagine, Think, Create,
Friend, Freedom,
Why? Explain, Teach
Encourage, Praise, Peace
Hope, Faith, Love

With words
A thought, a mood, a life can change

Building blocks, patterns, pictures,
Symbols, springboards
For a man to dream, inspire, advance,
Educate skeptics
Who might curb knowledge
Kill new ideas

Filling the void, answering questions
Bringing wisdom from eons past
Handed down from generation to generation
From spoken to written form
To stand the test of time.

From a word
Comes thoughts, poems, stories, books

Breathe a word
Give it life .  .  .
A writer's dream
To touch, inspire, encourage.

Words can live forever


Long enough to alter
A thought, a mood, a life
For the better.

Nicely put, Donelle. We forget how powerful single words can be.

I too wrote a poem called The Power of Words.
They truly are powerful. No matter the subject without them there is but only silence.
