words

words

created by the brain
perhaps a few by the heart
some by a good brain and a good heart
some by a good brain and a bad heart
some by a bad brain and a good heart
some by a bad brain and a bad heart

words
once created come out of the mouth into the air
some out of the hands on paper or earlier, papyrus, or earlier, stone
some out of the hands into the techno-air onto screens
some out of hand signals for those who cannot hear

words
heard or read or decoded
yet never quite meaning what the creator intended
with brain or heart or both
because
the receiver hears but does not listen nor think critically
only using filters from past experience and brain and heart, good or bad
and
the word drives those who hear
rallying like lemmings around what they heard through filters
without listening

words
sadly take the blame, condemned even though they are only words
along with the creator of the words
to pit each other against each other because of words

when
words by themselves
are beautiful
all of them.
