Punctuations are important. They are taught to us for a reason. Words are beautiful and magnificent but they are limited. Words would falter attempted intensities and convictions without punctuations. They would continuously try but continuously fail as well. Modernly overlooked and never fully appreciated, punctuations are the keys to writing our emotions. The breathtaking exclamations to exuberant and heart-stopping moments. The lingering pauses brought upon by the ellipses. The abrupt end of a hurtful single period ‘goodbye’. The punctuation has always been there, it’s unconsciously embedded in us. It’s what we feel, what we’re made of. We are a string of endless punctuations and our minds fill these spaces in between with overflowing vocabulary that we slowly forget and we get sidetracked. We let the neglect of punctuations grow and we think less of them. We grow older and our words remarkably evolve. Joy to exaltation, sadness to misery, so on and forth. However, punctuations will be the same. They will stay and continue symbolizing the declarations, questions and exclamations of our lives. So yes, punctuations are critical. We need them, for though we never realize, they might be the only constant concept that we’ve ever learned.
