The Language The World Speaks

ryan-winterbotham-228922.jpg

There is a language the world speaks,

Voices who tell without words,

Heard from the sea to the mountain peaks,

Music without notes or chords.

Voices who tell without words,

Incomprehensible to hear with your ears,

 A symphony without chords,

Perhaps an answer to your biggest fears.

Incomprehensible to hear with your ears,

One must listen with their heart,

Perhaps an answer to your biggest fears,

Close your eyes and fall apart.

One must listen with their heart,

Heard from the sea to the mountain peaks,

Close your eyes and fall apart,

There is a language the world speaks.
