There is no truth in words.
True communication is ancient.
Movement, tone of voice, intonation.
Words can be easily manipulated,
Through words we are trapped
in a world of self recognition.
In our own realities,
segregated, isolated, separated.
Over time we find ourselves
entwined with words inflicted
and hide behind the lies we live with,
designed, confined; mankind restricted.
I want to seek the universal truth
without explaining it, describing it,
containing it, defining it.
I mistrust, I rebuke, I deny, I respect,
I regret, I neglect, I apply,
I accept… words.
Words are the scourge of the earth.
