What is a Word?

Lachlan Macleod, 2008

What is a word?
It may paint a thousand pictures
But can they be defined by a word?


A word canít say
Or define what weíre thinking;
Which thought passes our mind
For a word will never describe the image
The picture
The thought


It will never delve into the deepest dungeons
The highest heavens
The most beautiful being
Words describe feelings
Objects
Questions
But they canít describe thoughts


The mind is a telescope
Through it
You can see the most beautiful lights
The dullest of all dulls
Yet also scenes that only God himself could create


Or see Sights you would never imagine seeing
Angels on rooftops
Bright lights streaming through the heavens
Reflecting its image


The word may be a powerful tool
But it will never be
Telepathy
