Words on a page

A Poem by Tara
"

Funny isn't it?

"
Funny isn't it?
The words on this page
Will have no effect on you
Because to you
They come from someone 
You neither know
Nor care for 
But the words on this page
Do have a meaning 
Every word has a meaning
In the dictionary
But some words 
Just get overlooked 
The word 
"Death"
Does not make your heart race
Or your eyes widen
The word 
"Pain" 
Will not falter your reading
Or stop your thinking
Words such as 
"I love you" 
Are over used 
And thus have no meaning anymore
Like when you print too much money
And that money then has no value
If I typed the words
"I want to die"
You wouldn't react 
Or feel pity 
Because they're just words
From someone you don't know
But, if I typed the words
"You have ink on your face" 
You would check
Strange isn't it?
Where are priorities now lie
Not with others 
But with ourselves 
And no one else
Because 
Over time 
We have become such selfish creatures
Thinking only about ourselves
And how to get more
Than we already have 
Funny isn't it?
