I cannot hide

Words are my friends

I am silent

Cannot hear my silent thoughts

So I dig deeper

To find hidden words

My friends- words

To liberate me

To pull me out of this funk

To shake off lethargy

To force me to listen

To words I cannot hear

Words I need to rise

Out of this pit

Words- my lifeline

If I could but hold on

Grasp even more words

Words-smashing shackles

Overturning tables of confusion in my head

I ramble and words find me

I cry and the Word comforts me

I cannot hide

I cling to words

The Word holds me close
