These words are my escape, my release

They can create anything for me

A fairy tale for me to hide in

A poem to bury emotions in

These words can save me from reality

Take me to a place where no one can follow

They can't hurt me, like people can

They can't abandon me, like people do

These words, they're safe

They shape dreams, form wishes

A way to make history

A display of one's true self

These words, they can do anything

Underestimated, unappreciated, but amazing

No matter what language you use

Written or spoken, they're everything

Their sound shows their meaning

Their shape shows their nature

A piece of beauty in a world

That constantly becomes darker
