Anyone can write an acrostic
Because words come in every size, shape and letter
Could you imagine a world where there weren’t
Descriptive phrases for every feeling?
Emotions would stagnate inside our souls
Faltering our every move
Gagging each effort to communicate truth, love and passion
How could we move ahead with so many things left unsaid?
Ignoring what stirs deep within us, bottling all of our thoughts.
Just for a moment, imagine your day
Kept in perfect silence
Letters left to themselves to organize into streams of nothingness
My words would flip around in circles, disobedient and stray
Never stopping to wonder of their purpose
Or to obey a grammatical guideline
Perhaps they would slam into unsuspecting victims
Quite unsure of their target but damaging just the same
Ricocheting past those who need them
Swaying by loved ones who treasure their sounds
Try holding in those words too long and they’ll choke your breathe
Understanding their urgency I must open my mouth
Very sure of my purpose here
With care and devotion I’ll type and I’ll speak
X is my motivator and my King
Your passion with which I will create
Zeroed in on the goal of your glory, I will use words or perish finding another way…..
