The Poetry Snapshot: Power of Words

Billion of words, glistening in a void.

All words shine on their own,
but we string them together into
magnificent constellations to share stories.

Some words are powerful suns
that can bring light to a dark life-
or burn a life down to ashes.

Other words will shoot out of us in the moment,
they can fulfill spontaneous wishes or cause regret.

People cannot forget words.

At the end of the day, without fail,
words will shine brilliantly
and remind people that we will
forever live under them.
