I – the written word
To many I am transient,
In the moment, well thought of,
but just as quickly put aside.
my creative purpose, too frequently, surpassed,
seemingly for a better one.
And I in the midst of presentation
of poignant knowledge,
for your acquisition and enlightenment,
am left behind.
My sole passion to create your passion,
shaded subtleties and secrets
I would share for those who dare to read and learn.
Not just partake as in a feast,
feeding temporary hunger and then moving on.
Do I illuminate most vividly or is your viewing superficial?
My value and meaning dependent entirely on you.
And I – the written word – await the outcome!
