Words Must



People compete
to be each no better than the next.
So I say let them.
Who could stop them?
But words must matter.
Words must strive, words must try
to be no worse.
If people ever decide
to step forward, to care,
the words will be there.
And if they don't, or can't?
The words will be there yet.
They may not be complete,
but they don't embrace defeat.
