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?
