if words had sentience

if words had

sentience

i wonder

if we would

speak them

so freely

let them leave

us

so quickly

if words

breathed

lived as

we do

would there

be anything

left?

this world

would be

a desolate

place

if words had

sentience

if they led

lives

as we do

anger

pain

fear

would be par

the course

and peace

love

kindness

far

between

it would

be much

as it is

now

yet

perhaps

with

far less

hope

if words

could breathe

this place

would be

nothing more

than a wasteland

of dreams.
