    Well said. Communication through Language, to me, has been somewhat polluted ive realized as ive gotten older which is why when someone reads or writes something that doesnt necessarily follow the normal structure or cadence of a language, it can communicate on a deeper level because it speaks to the core of a feeling that lies within the person. There is no need for the normal passages ways of speech/writing to express an emotion/moment/experience etc. I really like this poem. Its a wonderful reminder to me. Thank you.
