Can words describe how I feel?
Do words have the power to heal?

With this enigma in mind
I find myself peering deep into the composition
Of a spider’s silky woven web

A wholly intricate design
Suddenly I realize this is a sign
The arachnid has spun
Its lavishly proficient symbol

A perfect metaphor
The web of words available
To tap into and utilize
For personal self expression

Like the spider
I too can spin my own lines
Revolve thoughts into words
Giving birth to my glistening web

Upon this sudden revelation
I pick up pen and paper
Open heart and mind
And allow my spirit to speak

The answer to my question is:
Words can describe how I feel
And they do have the power to heal
