Words carry weight
Sometimes you can even see
The strength and immensity of their power
Iā€™m reminded of wizards and sages
Who spilled over their voluble incantations
Illusions made real by voice and rhythm
With lips and wisps and flowing tongues
Chords and cords plucked and strung
Watch carefully now as lives lean to and fro
At the immeasurable strength of words
Most of my lectures start with, "Words carry weight."
