Semantics

image

 

Words.
Twisted, mangled, complex.
I break them down.
I tear them apart.
I search for meaning.
I decode hidden gems
the average eye won’t see.

Words.
I love them.
They have great power
when used wisely.
They give great strength
when understood.

Words.
She said,
“I’ll see you in a minute!”
I assumed she meant,
I’ll see you in roughly 1 to 5 minutes
ten minutes tops!
She showed up an hour later. Wtf!

Words.
He said,
“See you later…”
I assumed he meant,
See you later on today or
some time in the next 24 hours.
I saw him, 3 days later. Bummer!

Words.
Do you know
the power of your words?
Do you stand by your words?
Do you understand
how your words affect others?

Words.
Think about the things you say.
Don’t just use words
because you think
it’s what someone wants to hear.
Think before you speak
or don’t say anything at all.
