TITLE: WORD TO WRITE

The world of writing is a haven of light and shade, of laughter and of tears, of joy and of sadness. The writer's domain is a wonderful place of words, both earthly and heavenly, a space where the sun shines and the rains fall, not both at the same time, but still a place of honor and dignity. The words that spill out of typewriters, word processors, and computers are messages from the heart of the writer. Happiness or sadness is expressed in words that either bring joy or cut deep into the heart of the reader. Words are woven into sentences that aptly describe a person's elation or distress, emotions that ring true in the expert use in the hand of the writer.

Writing is a precious commodity and a link between peoples of the worlds. Words that communicate the truth become the wisdom of the ages. Words that dispel gloom arouse a person to action. Words are the solutions to riddles and problems. Words of peace and love evoke a person's desire to write, to dream, to behold, to act. Where there is happiness or sorrow, there are words expressed in haste, in condemnation, in elation, in consideration. There are words that heal the sick out of their misery and disgrace; words that encourage the weak to be more strong in mind and in spirit; words that are planted deep into the hearts of the young, the old, the in-betweens.

There are words to write, to enjoy; words of love, of peace, of happiness, of despair, of prayer. There are precious words that bring warring worlds together; words of wisdom from the pages of classic works of art; words of freedom out of the lips of people who march and declare their acceptance and/or rejection of the popularity of rules that govern their every day life; and words of justice that defy bias and immorality. Words are bandied about to balance the power that have been laid into the hands of a few, and more words to spread the vigor of authority into the bosom of the liberated populace. There are words of honesty, of lies, of regrets. There are words that are rejected for the poison within their structures. There are words that are infused in paragraphs that need a better construction to be fully understood.

Words that have been passed through generations of literary artists become the media through which people learn the events that impact the lives of their own nations as well as those of international countries of the universe, whether or not the words are worthy and truthful to the history of the ages. Words are translated into actions by the pure in heart and by the crazed mindlessness of the maddening crowd. At times, words become the symbols of goodness or of evil, the image of the sweet and the bitter, the representation of the beautiful and the ugly. Words that are used ethically and with respect become the lore of the future, the treasure of the past, and the wonder of the present. With words, a memory is rekindled, an action is inspired, a lonesome heart is filled with joy, a life is saved.

Words bring gladness to a sorrowing heart in an ever-contrasting mood depicted in poetry. Words are pictures of hope and inspiration in tales of the human world, depicting tragedy or recreating a new, unfettered joy. Writers, as they expend the changing colors of beauty and ugliness, are willing prisoners of words. In their desire to release the emotions that are created through their artistry, writers remain true to their calling by writing down words that represent the beauty of a sunset, the horror of a crime, the misgivings of a contrite heart, the happiness of a marriage, the miracle of a new bith.

Words are an ever-present, mind-boggling puzzle and mysterious epithet of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
