Some days

some days

I’ve much to say

words come easy

other days

not so much

but is it right?

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.”
― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

some days

I love to write

dot the i’s

cross the t’s

but is it right?

“Any word you have to hunt for in a thesaurus is the wrong word. There are no exceptions to this rule.”
― Stephen King

some days

I learned long ago

what is said and

what is written

follow one forever

but is it right?

“That’s what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.”
― Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things

some days

not just words

but their intent

consume my soul

but is it right?

“I like good strong words that mean something…”
― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

some days

I prefer to be quiet

am I not in touch?

but is is right?

“We live and breathe words.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince
