There is a River Out There

Where did this (Eng)lish language come from?

 

Did it...

 

f

a

l

l

 

from the sky or

 

                                        jump the continents wide?

 

Who decides the punctuation we write?

 

Who decides this c a d e n c e that we hear?

 

                       Perhaps, because there is a river out there

 

Unmasked and

                   UnNaMeD

 

Whose w o r d s  flow from its (mouth)

 

As if oceans

                     of

                          letters

                                     make

                                               steps

                                                         for

                                                                 our

                                                                        lives

 

Like a candle burns to provide light

 

But, sometimes this light is just too small

 

We need:                                         W  o  r  d  s

 

AsIfEachLetterMeansSomething

 

                                    Because there is a river out there

 

                        And this time...

                                                  it's calling your

name
