If a man/woman sees, he/she will feel,
If a man/woman shows one picture, he/she can make believe,
If a man/woman reads, he/she will learn,
If a man/woman writes, he/she can make you think.
Between the writer and the picture,
One thousand words are there,
And the writer if he is to be a master of his lore,
To recreate this picture,
Plus one thought,
Will slave, struggle and labor,
Upon the one thousand and first word,
Because when this word alone will be heard,
Beyond the range of our universal colors;
Within the world of ideas,
Will become shared reactions,
And shared actions.
The writer will make you feel,
The writer will make you believe,
The writer will make you learn,
The writer will make you think.
Beware of the magic of the one thousand and first word,
A magic to think and dream of the impossible,
Against the powers who would limit you to the possible.
Writer, guard this word well, unfettered by censorship.
