Words, do they have a power?

It is difficult to say if words do have a power, but they surely are the shadow of a soul that the ink throw on the paper. When words are real, which means when they come directly from the heart, they carry in them a deep and long story: is the “I” scratched on the paper just a simple straight line or somehow is capable to represent the shadow of human existence on paper? And why there is a word for life and a word for existence? Because one cannot contain the other?
Why is the Statue of Liberty in Kafka’s Amerika holding an upraised sword instead of the torch we know? Is there a meaning we cannot see? Maybe that even freedom is just another perception of human slavery? Or that there is no freedom without fight for it?
