Nevermind language; all words are priceless,
If only because once they leave the tongue
Taking them back becomes a whole new narrative;
Furthermore, the meaning behind each one,
With the consideration of timing and tone,
Is entirely relative.
As I take a moment to build a piece,
Each word I place in sequence, to the best of my ability;
All based on a metric that necessitates its placement
In the containment of each sentence;
Ultimately, letters are allocated accordingly
In a deliberate attempt, to create meaning and order,
On the abacus, that is my page.

Creating meaning out of anything and everything; I am in love with the creative process.
It’s interesting how you can write something intending for it to convey a specific idea but it actually sparks a different meaning in others. Some people may think of that entire situation as vexing, but for me, that’s where the beauty lies.
