Strength in Words Each word holds a certain weight, Word upon word, you build Until all together they create An order, waiting to be filled A writer wants nothing more Than to be read, but by who? Who is it they are writing for? Is it for me? For you? Perhaps their feelings are mixed, They want everyone to read it To love it, to be transfixed But they also want it a secret Because with the power Of their words and thoughts, Is the fear of the hour When love finally rots. The writer is a hero at a time, But his followers can Quickly turn on a dime, Making him a hated man. Words may spark dreams in some, Though others may only loathe. So beware writers as you press on, As your work is loved and hated both.
