Just 26 letters 

Constantly rearranging 

To fit the patterns 

Of us comprehending 

Words can hold meaning 

Words can be shallow 

Words can be screaming 

Words can be mellow 

Words have every trait  

That humans can embody 

Because words create  

The world’s canopy 

Words describe all scenarios 

Words are all situations 

Words can shrink and grow

Words form communication 

When people leave 

When people dont care 

When people grieve 

Words are always there

I realize I can rely 

On the comfort words provide 

And I realize words are a better friend 

Than anyone who is human
