Even If I Had to Milk Cows Daily, I’d Still Leave the Barn for Words

I can’t imagine not being a writer

Words are part of our lives, no matter what we do. They come out of our mouths and sometimes without a lot of forethought.

Words have unique sounds and we capture them with creative phrases in poems, thought-provoking sentences, or paragraphs. We sometimes even have to read words more than once for a better understanding.

Words greet us in the morning and pressure us with demanding 9 to 5 roles. They make us laugh with late-night talk shows. And when they come with music — well, we sing so loud with internal smiles, teary eyes, or a lot of dancing.

Words are like magic. They’re also powerful. Use them wisely.

Words have been the building blocks stuck in our pockets since infancy. We are shaped by words. Our thoughts are shaped by words. Words are born out of our emotions. We use them to define who we are. We use them to describe who you are.

There’s no such thing as overstating the value of words. Without them, I couldn’t finish writing my book. I couldn’t write this.

We offer inspiration because of them. We use them to persuade people to do this, that, or the other. They can transform someone’s outlook on life.

Words light up a writer’s imagination like when I say, I can see your soul.

We all know the bad things words can do, so it’s better to use them to uplift someone’s life, or to create that paragraph you haven’t been able to get out of your head all week.

For writers, words are a form of art. We try hard to make them extraordinary.

Oh, and as far as the title of this piece goes, well, I don’t milk cows. If I did, I would always make time for every single word.


Thanks for reading all these words.
