Once I was Told

Once I was told that

Words are a gift

And to use them with care

Treasuring their potency

Once I was told that

Words have a life

Of their own once

 Conceived. “Release at your own risk.”

Once I was told that

Words have power

Never fully understood

By their supposed masters. (It’s true)

Once I was told that

Words are from God

To share the wonder

Of the journey called life.

I believed what I was told.

And life has been all the richer.

About loverofwords20

Allison is an aspiring author, and a lover of words, music, and the Lord Jesus Christ. She is also abysmal at these “about you” things, being unable to think of quirky characteristics at the drop of a hat. However, she enjoys singing randomly and loudly, and laughing hysterically while being caught in the rain.
