When You Write It Down

 

When you write something down

it is your soul in essence

as personal as it can be

in thought and substance

words emerge one by one

once they start there is no stopping them

but you have to give them form and function

and make them convey what

you have to say

the best of a man's mind

lies in his writing

we all have thoughts and emotions

but once you write them down

there is a permanence

a commitment to the word

nothing means more than words on paper

you are now on record

you cannot erase the words

you cannot go back

the beauty of it is

thoughts in words

leave an indelible impression

your voice carved into stone

like hearing I love you

for the first time

written words stay embedded

forever in your mind

and heart.
