The Simplest Words

Let me tell you

Of what I have learned through poetry.



The simplest words have the most power


They’re the ones that stay on your mind

And pull at your heart


They’re the ones that give you chills

And start movements


When you think about it,

It really comes as no surprise


It is, after all, the smallest seeds

That travel the furthest


And the smallest droplets

Which form a rainbow


It doesn’t serve to clutter the page

With long, dense sentences


When the most power is held

Within the untouched spaces

Found between the smallest words.
