Im a YOUNG writer, anything weird or stupid sry... dont have much experience... im also really scared copying , not that i have, but if something is close, i wouold die, so i use a plagiarism checker everytime i write a poem... how can you get away from that fear? Anyway:

The words leaked through, flowing, rushing, out of the pen, like water through paper.
Misnamed, misused, as it was known as a meaningless vapor.
Interpreted wrongly, falsely accused as a noun
But just as alive as the flames that leap then crouch down

Spoken just to mar the heart of those who go through endless affliction
But then written down like an unknown, hidden addiction
Stooped in a corner, as though forming their lives into something more
For words are exactly like a tranquil, quiet war

But to yield your actions and commence with a language new-fangled
To mark your existence by considering it in a new angle
To replace your limbs with your tongue but to keep on living like before
Words are more than pain for they are something you can’t ignore

Whether to work as a weapon or simply used as a tool
To be used by a practiced master or by a hurting fool
To be copied into characters of endless meaning and sense
Or to be spoken by the tongue in obvious defense

For they speak of all that could be spoken of, and more than ever known
Words planted into the heart, just as seeds are sown
For no matter if it is read, or if it is heard
Never underestimate the power of a word

This is brilliant. I'll be honest, though--I wasn't too sure about the "like water through paper" analogy; but I was entirely impressed with the rest of the poem. I loved reading it... It's so refreshing to read good work!
