The Simplest Words

Let me tell you

Of what I have learned through poetry.

 

Sometimes,

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.
