O, That My Words Were Written

Edward Riojas's avatar Edward Riojas

My words. When everything is lost; when I have become nothing; when my children are taken from me; when my friends fail, and point out my faults and failures; when those closest to me tell me to curse God; when they tell me to die; when my body fails and my skin rots; when broken glass and shattered pottery are my only salve; when wandering dogs lick my sores, still, I have my words. O, how they cry out! O, that my words were written!
