Words: A Choice We MakeA Poem by Carole
Word's that cut like a knife and wound to the core of our very being
"You're ugly, too skinny, too fat!"
"You'll never amount to anything!"
"I wish you had never been born!"
" I wish you were dead!"
Words of discouragement tearing down the ones we love
Wishing we could take back every hurtful word
Like rewinding a voice recorder
But, they have already done their damage
Already maimed the innocent
Damaging their tender spirits
Maybe a spouse,
A significant other,
Words that encourage like a healing Salve
In their place
Knowing that we are building
Not Tearing it
With our tongues
It’s a choice.
