Our Place

~This was originally written for my small collection of poems on April 24th, 2014.~

All these words
were made before I was,
but all these words
were never put together like this
before I was.

But now, through these words
I speak, and you read
You try to comprehend the words
That have been used millions of times
before you.

They write a million stories.
They describe a million memories.
They make a million people
stop and think and try to comprehend
what is lying before them.

The words are always the same.
But the meaning isn’t.
Arrangement and orientation
are what create this beauty
before our very eyes.
