The Battle Cry
If words alone were powerful, the person who crafted the dictionary would surely be our ruler; The author of the thesaurus a worthy adversary, dicing up kingdoms ruled only by words.
Yet, it is not words alone that are almighty. They sit, heaped in a pile, whose only solo intimidation is their vastness of size.
The writer, who strings the words together to bring about a story. The poet, whose words illicit an emotion in rhyme. The politician, whose words propagate us forward and backward. The Activist, whose words inspire us through time. The real power is in ones ability to wield the words together.
The true sword versus the pen.
