About the Poem

I've been writing for a few months now, and I had no idea what poetry was all about prior to that. The more I write, the more I learn. It seams that poems make you go deep into your heart, and I love how poetry helps a person discover who they are inside. I tried to convey in this poem, just how powerful these changes have been in my life. I have learned to really appreciate words and concepts, new ideas, new ways of saying things.

Overall, through poetry, I've pretty much learned to appreciate everything about life.

Word Power

"A picture paints a thousand words," or so it's often told
A thousand words are priceless though, for treasures that they hold
An incidental consequence of value added prose
Are exponential visuals, from there the number grows
A thousand words for each picture, a picture for each word
A thousand times a thousand times a picture, once observed
Before the tower of Babel, before the language curse
Before there even was a man, was universal verse
Words spoken made the universe, and all that will occur
In the end we'll all know - in the beginning was The Word
