Without words

There would be no you

There would be no me.

We are who we are

Because of words

Spoken long before us.

Had one word not been written

Not been spoken

We would now not be.

Had another word been written

A different word

Or worse,

no words.

Darkness and death

would be our bread.

Better off with what’s been said.

What if previous works had not been written?

Works that have defined a culture and civilization?

Works that have founded religions?

What if the authors had not composed their works?

Where would we be as a civilization?

Would our country even exist?

Would any country we know today even exist?

No Bible? No Shakespeare? No Poe? No Twain?

Rewriting our now.

Please, writer,

keep writing.
