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
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.
