Words Without a Translation

Ms. Allred is an avid reader and writer, who constantly looks for inspiration in the world around her. She is unconventional & proud of it.


The words tug on my lips, as striking as a foreign kiss;

lost in translation and reformation of the great abyss.

Where language is obstinate and undefined,

and words without meanings gather in kind

to take on the challenge of the human mind

and escape the chaotic construct of time.

Battling the ignorance of ungrateful men,

with nothing but wits, they expect to contend.

However as powerful as words can be,

Their disillusions cannot set them free.

Misunderstandings righted were proved for naught,

To regrets and mistakes over which wars were fought.

Now, this chasm where beautiful words must reside,

Is only open to people who can open their mind.

      Yes my friend, wars have been fought over mere words and how important can that be in today's world. We are certainly living in a time of chaos and world unrest. Many blessings for your deep words and thoughts. whonu
