Words. They derive from one's mindset and comprehension of this life, our existence. A person's individuality is not identified in their face, or in their voice. Not in the clothes they wear or in the color of their eyes. Look past all those disguises and you will find a person's true identity in the words they profess.
At a young age our apt minds become aware of the power behind words. We realize that words can build us up, and they make us into quite a fashionable fabrication, a personage, to be accepted and loved by the hearts of someone, somewhere. Acknowledgement and interaction from other people is highly regarded in our society. Think about how much of your life you spend just chatting and connecting with others. Only through our vocabulary can we define and comprehend a meaning to this life.
Imagine if you nullified the ability of speech from two people, then locked them into the same room, the same hell. Can you imagine what may possibly become of their lives? What would they do?

Words are our wings, and it's human nature to show everyone how you fly. If you're upset about something what do you usually do? You tell someone about it. That is the reason people do lots of things, including arguing. Arguments have become somewhat habitual in our society, but that's not the way it should be. Time is wasted on disputes, no action is ever made to fix the issue. You may think your words cut like a blade or your charm warms hearts like fire, but that is only the reality if the listener allows your words to do so. You have to understand that some people out there aren't as secure with the words they posses than you are. Words are meant to guide the lost, not make them stray from their path. This reality is the very reason I choose to move along and keep my mouth shut. I used to be a person like you, enthralled with words and the way they give purpose. I liked to watch television and surf the internet. I loved reading books and poetry and listening to music. I cherished words, I held them close and never let them go. I thought words. I dreamed words. I wrote stories and songs about words. I told the fucking world about words. But even after I did I still heard something from way out in the crowd that was killing me, an...
