Words.....Journey to Immortality

Words, spoken by the mind’s eye
Invisible to the outer yet perfectly
Legible to the inner that is soul
Divided among many, considered circumspectly

We write because we must
We put ink to paper to carry our voices through time.
We hope those reading, are ones to perhaps trust
To truly be understood, no matter the time, truly sublime?

As these words flow immortal to time
Untouched by age, not sickened by disease
Yet blackened by intention or bolstered by egotism
Such a fickle thing, words, the truly deep, spoken with no ease

Rhythm and rhyme, ink blots of thoughts
Laying waste to once unspoken insurmountable tasks
Oh, the chaos, the utter devastation these have wrought
Now in the promise of immortality basks

Read them some fine day
Those fickle words, watch the existing reason
Of such as these, always find a way
To eternally exist, be….the ultimate crime of treason…….

Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Last few words: 
Uhm.....need I say not ask me what I'm thinking lately Different sort of "topic" if you want to call it that for me, tell me if this works, if at all, please I truly would like to know......thanks
Editing stage: 


Beautiful picturesque scenery you have painted here with your words....And your last stanza summarizes it all...We see God's Divine Technology and Art set before us every and in action....Beautiful ....endless list...Thanks so much for writing and sharing this piece...Be Blessed
