Making a language
Today, with my friends,
I am making a language.
I hold it in my hands,
and breathe life into it.
I think, as I look at it, that I'm like a god-
What I want of this language, will be.
But I'm also like a parent to a child-
I must protect it, I must take of it, I must feed it.
And suddenly I know:
It lives because of me, but I live
because of it.
