Words are not mearly words.
At times they are, but only when no thought is behind them.
More often then not, they are symbols.
To a poet, they are art.
To the desperate, they are a life saver.
To Christians, they lead to God.
To the angry, they are weapons.
To lovers, they are a link.

To the victems, they are comfort.*
To the caring, they are support.*
To the brave, they are a call to others.*
....for others to come help*
........or that they are on their way.*

Words are many things to many people, it truth, lies, or in between.
But to me, words are anything but words.

(*Added after the WTC crash 9-11-2001)
My response to people who always say words are completely meaningless. I can't disagree more, especially in times like this. I've add lines* to this poem specifically to comport the victems, the families, the nation wide rescue effort (people from near my home have gone there because they need fire fighters so badly). YOUR words can help. Share them. Feel free to add them here. Words of comfort are always welcome.

.....ugggg this is all getting to me. :( (Sad)
