I Have

I have words, words I like
words I adore, words I admire.
I have words I guard, words I strike
words I don’t, words I require.

I have words I lust, words I crave
words I ignore, words I seek.
I have words I trust, words I brave
words I revere, words I speak.

I have words I want, words I need
words am enforced, words I choose.
I have words I state, words I bleed
words I leave, words I lose.

I have words of impulse, words of instinct
words of emotions, words of indifference.
I have words featureless, words distinct
words of necessity, words of preference.

I have words I avoid, words which find me
words I eat, words I shove
I have words I court, words which flee
words with a beat, words I love.

I have words to pray, words to write
But nothing to service, not a single thought.
I have words of quiet, words of fright
Words I must say through daily battles fought.
