The Steps To Rhyme And Reason

When you read, you go through a series of steps, all of which are personal. To you. And you alone. Your eyes see the symbols joined together to make words, the graphical representations of sounds. These sounds are then translated into meaning. They are given voice by your observation of them. You have no choice in the matter.

Try to not read this sentence.

Thousands of people may read this but each of them will read it in their own way. It is unique to them.

To you. That is why I wrote it.

Because you are unique in your voice and your way. You are special. A unique aspect of a glimmering whole. We are all the whole. But you alone are you. And because I speak to you and you alone, intimately, I know you as well as I know myself.

And that is why I have the faith I do in you. You will be great. You will be amazing.

You will change the world. I know you.

I tired not to read.
Almost a million times, by now.
But I just can't.

I didn't read it.
Now I wish I knew what it said.
I think I'll read it now.

I wanna bottle up your words and drink it, whenever I feel scared.
