words

there are words that carry a lot of meaning in our society.

there are the conflicted kind that serve to elevate the few while deflating the many

and the enduring, like a mothers whisper in dying breast.

there are some that pull into our mistakes and drag our limbs from place to park.

while others are battering truths that make us microscopic before stamping us out entirely.

my favorite resemble the warmth of mornings coated in thick molasses.

it seems we shroud the very core of our existence in our words..

but frankly,

of them and their infinite configurations,

none is more precious than a word uttered in single breath

and promise.

no, there is just not any lovelier than

we.
