The Words of Now



The Words That Were become the Words That Are
become the Words That Will Be.
Read the Words of Then and read the Words of Now.
Then decide the Words That Will Be.
To be with words is to be blessed.
To be without words is to be cursed.
All words are available but not all words are suitable.
You will rely heavily upon the words
that indicate the suitability of the words.
These too must be chosen.
It is a great responsibility to choose
of all the words the Words That Will Be.
When your words become in turn the Words That Were,
how will they be read then?
