by Stella Villalba

I believe in the power of words

in the power of their touch

their transcendental message

and the question marks it leaves behind.

I believe in the solitude of words

when they hang and linger in our minds

maybe longer than they should

filling the space with doubts

I believe in the magic of words

when said it at the right time

at the right place

to the right one...

I believe in the power of the writer

who hesitates if she has something

worth telling at all...only to realize that

this world has a need for words...

not just any words




Dedicated to my friend MZ who long ago discovered the magic of words, but recently realized the power of becoming a public writer. May all of us do something brave each day.
