Words, what are they?

What does the word ‘word ‘ mean?

So fragile and gullible

Yet so powerful and poignant

They are so small, almost insignificant

Small amalgamations of letters,

Lying next to each other

Like sticks from that old rhyme

Yet those sticks, summon up thoughts

They sparked rebellions and democracies

A few words which were said

Killed a million people

Wiped out an entire race

They are given adjectives

But adjectives are given to nouns or pronouns

An animal, name, place or thing

Is a word any of these?

Can we place it under any of these categories?

What really are words?
