Dear Faceless Words

Dear faceless words, You've given me so much. 

Your voice changes with what you say, 

An echo of your many names.

As a wandering traveler, you taught me to see beauty.

As a boy under the stairs, you taught me what good and evil were.

As son of the sea, you taught me loyalty.

As a pirate, freindship.

As a cursed girl, independance.

As a reborn warrior, courage.

And as a resonating terror, you taught me the desire to live.

 

Dear faceless words, you've shaped who I am.

The encouragement and instruction,

The love and reprimanding,

The answer to every question.

Those were your identity,

They were the one I knew.

You were every push,

When I thought I couldn't move.

You were every explaintion,

When I thought I wasn't meant to understand.

 

Dear faceless words, It's really thanks to you.

It's because you were here.

Because of every spoken word,

Every ink stained page,

Every heartfelt song,

Every painted image,

That I am who I came to be.

That I can still sing and speak.

That I am still here, I still breathe.

 

Dear faceless words, Thank you for everything.

Sincerly, 

A soul no longer lost.
