On Words

On Words

I’VE ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD THE IMPACT OF WORDS
I FEEL THEM
SO DO YOU
I’VE COME TO REALIZE THAT NOT EVERYBODY RESPECTS THE POWER OF WORDS
NOT EVERYONE DESERVES ACCESS TO HOLD THE MIC

*SIDE NOTE: THE MICROPHONE WAS INVENTED IN LOVE
TO INCREASE THE VOLUME OF THE HUMAN VOICE
THE EARLIEST VERSION WAS THE “LOVER’S TELEPHONE” 
OF STRETCHED WIRE AND TWO CUPS AT EITHER END.

AND THEN IT WAS USED FOR WAR
BUT LOVE FIRST. 

BACK TO WORDS.
AND THE WAY THEY CAN FLY INTO OUR EARS
GLOW INTO OUR EYES
GET UNDER OUR SKIN
EMBED IN OUR CELLS
LINGER FOREVER INSIDE OF US
WITHOUT US EVEN KNOWING.
BUT THOSE WORDS, THEY’RE ALL THERE.
AND THEY CAN STAY THERE FOREVER.

I TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY WORDS.
EACH LETTER, WORD, SENTENCE, PUNCTUATION MARK
AND DELIVERY.

OUR CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE WORDS WE SEE, HEAR, AND FEEL
IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG.
THERE’S AN ENTIRE OCEAN UNIVERSE OF SUBCONSCIOUS
WE HAVE BARELY BEGUN TO EXPLORE.
STORIES OF WORDS
NOVELS OF WORDS
ENCYCLOPEDIAS OF WORDS
OF OUR LIVES
OUR ANCESTORS
AN INFINITE ACCUMULATION OF TALES
TRUE OR NOT

THAT'S FOR YOU TO DECIDE

WHAT STORIES ARE YOU TELLING YOURSELF DAILY?
DO THEY MAKE YOU HAPPY?
DO THEY MAKE YOU BRAVE?
DO THEY HOLD YOU BACK?

EVERY DAY, YOU CAN DECIDE YOUR STORY
YOU CAN CHANGE IT
TURN IT INTO A MASTERPIECE
A FAIRY TALE
A DREAM WORLD
IT'S YOUR STORY

I'M WRITING NEW STORIES EVERY DAY
ABOUT US

WITH MY WORDS
KNOWING THEIR IMPACT
I'M GOING TO TELL YOU SECRETS
OF EMPOWERMENT
AND LOVE.

FROM MY HEART TO YOURS
BECAUSE THEY NEED TO SPEAK.

THIS IS MY WORDSHIP.
