A line
is a directional
that can be used
to organize words
into structured forms.

It is also one of the many formations
we are taught to abide by
when learning to write within an educational institution.

When a group of words begin to form a sentence,
a symbol of a period is placed at the end to signify
the closing
of a beginning statement.

It can also be used to signal that there is more to come.
In both instances, the sentence is a structure
made up of a line of words
that become a form of statement.

A statement that can be
a declaration of an idea,
thought and time.
