Just a Word

What are words to you?
Are they the seeds of your thoughts
and the glimmers of your meaning?
Or just sounds that you make
to keep me from your door?

What are words?
What are they good for?
What do they make you?
What do they make me?
What are words? 

What are words to me?
Are they the seeds of understanding
and glimmers of the world all around?
Or just noise from everywhere
to keep on the floor?

What are words?
What are they good for?
What do they make you?
What do they make me?
What are words? 

What are words to us?
Are they how we know our fellows
and glimmer of the truth inside the heart?
Or just the first of many weapons,
the coming sounds of war?

What are words?
What are they good for?
What do they make you?
What do they make me?

What are words? 

Are they just words?
