Letters & Words

Dear You,
I have always had a fascination with words and the images, colours, emotions, situations they create and conjure when strung together. And some so beautiful and/or powerful, they do all that just by themselves. Like love. Serendipity. Destiny. Education. Society. Power. Human. God. Woman. Man. Childhood.
Soon enough understanding them became a major joy in my life. and putting them together to bring to life my mental images, my inner struggles and tornadoes not only brought me happiness when I discovered what I could do with them but also a challenge I look forward to every time I try. A love. Something you can't let go of. Something that pushes you to be better. Something that is constant and engaging. Something that is also comfortable. Something that works on your head, heart and body. Something that is your world. Something akin to what I think love might be.
Words, I was taught early in life by my mother, are powerful. They convey your emotions and thoughts. But one's words can also affect another's emotions and thoughts. My mother always says that no matter what you do or say, people will always remember how you made them feel. And words have a very strong role to play in that. I have always struggled to affect people positively with my words. However, it was quite shattering to realize that how people feel is not entirely in one's control but one has to try to the best of one's abilities. And I have, hopefully. As the famous Boyzone song goes, "it's only words and words are all I have to take your heart away". If not take someone's heart. .. it is to take away some time and make it meaningful. and I hope to make it worthwhile. For myself and for whoever is listening and reading.
