The Words of Life

We are all living at different stages
Part of the same book, words on the pages
We are all part of this story
Only a few get the glory

Some are hard and tough like the outside cover
Some are skipped over and missed for another
Some are bold and give meaning to the rest
But who is to say what word is the best

It’s only in a sentence most have greater meaning
Accentuated sometimes by italic leaning
Some are short but connect others on a line
Longer ones perhaps form a greater design

Some are part of a lie, others pure and true
Some slang and more common, less well known or new
It takes many to tell a tale, all kinds big and small
We are the words, in the book of it all
