The Study of Meaning

I rather appreciate,
the people who sat down,
to collect all the words,
and all their meanings,
piled together,
for the rest of us,
to find the way,
to string them all along,
but I sometimes wish,
there was more opportunity,
to build new ones,
without coming across,
as weirdly self-serving,
or like someone acting,
through an ego,
the size of the moon
