Finding Words.

We are always looking to find the way,

Find the way ahead in our lives.

Sometimes we stumble

And come to a halt,

We need to think,

To find a way to go further,

That’s where words can help.

So many words are out there,

Sometimes they elude us,

But when they come

We know that if the words are found

We have a chance,

A chance to find the way.



If you have the words, there is always a chance that you will find the way – Seamus Heaney

      Good write. Not to deny the value of words, though I suppose there's times too when we may have no words, and 'just being there' can be enough.

      • Goldfinch60

        Thanks Orchi, and what you said can be very true.

                Very true BROTHER in the end the PEN (or PC) is much mightier than the SWORD ! What is poetry ? Just WORDS ~ but WORDS coined an arranged by the mind of the POET. What is the BIBLE ? Just words but words arranged by the mind of GOD ~ AMEN ~ Your Friend BRIAN
