500 Words or (Preferably) Less

Sun, 03/02/2014 - 17:16 -- 1456614

We slice our  lives down to 500 words,

--Words which can't begin to describe us,

Hoping for acceptance to write more words,

--Words which will never be fully appreciated.

 

We freely offer our 500 words,

--Words comprised of blood and tears,

Inviting strangers to judge our worth,

--Worth effectively dubbed as null.

 

We buy and sell futures with 500 words,

--Words which can't begin to describe us,

Submitting that lives are nothing more than words,

--Words which will never be fully appreciated.
