More Than Words

I’d rather be the rhythm than the lyrics
I’d rather be the paper than the ink
I’d rather be the ears than the tongue
I’d rather be the photo than the caption

Recognise me through my deeds
Rather than my vows
Identify me with my smile
Not my prayer
May my utterances
Be overpowered by my expressions
Pay little attention to my language
For all the poetry I have penned
And will ever write
I want to be more than my words
More than words…

I’d Rather Be…
Thank you Sreejit! Superb inspiration)

  2. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for sharing this with us. It is one of your best creations! There is so very much here that is powerfully expressed about meaning, about will, about presence…and a more.

    Thank you again.

    All good wishes,



  3. Wow, beautiful. Immediately I thought of the song when I read the title, but you completely blew the song away with your words, so funny to then see it there at the end.


    1. Great to hear that you knew this song. It has been one of my favorites. I wasn’t quite sure where I was going with this prompt, but I’m glad I could slot the video in nicely.
