State of the Poem

Only Words

They're only words
Slung by candidates
Rooting for the dirt
That will prove a route
Over their own frailty.

Only words to lead
Faithful sheep away
From some other
Well meaning fools
With promises unfilled.

Words to pull wool over
Eyes blind to desire
Needing to want
Slave driven payment
For the illusion of status.

Words of fear and fences
Neighbor our limits
Define our tolerance
Paving our way through
A place we cannot reach

Only words can save us
Reach through the hurt
Sooth the pain of life
Heal breaches in our soul
Delivered by language.
