Writing about Words

It’s the universal struggle: trying to get thoughts and dreams from the old noggin into words on a sheet of paper. Why does it have to be so difficult? Sometimes, words can’t even explain how one truly feels. Sadness. Hurt. Depression. Excitement. Utter happiness. These emotions can be portrayed through words, but only to a certain extent.
Yet…. The power of words shouldn’t be underestimated. There’s a famous quote that says, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” When used correctly, words can bring a memorable picture to one’s mind. They can be extremely powerful. Words can take a person into a whole other universe altogether; to a different place, to a different time.  It’s not odd to see people so immersed while reading a good book that they forget everything around them.  Words can pierce straight into one’s heart, triggering hidden emotions. My eyes grow red and begin to water when I reach a sad part of a story. I laugh and smile like mad during happy parts. My parents probably think I’m crazy. But I really can’t help it.

So I guess words are what you make them out to be. They can be so unbearably boring, but they can also bring someone to the point of tears. Just like everything else, it’s all about perspective. Everyone sees things in a different light, that’s what makes everyone so special.
