A Poem by Nebunova

To believe in the dignity of a man is not enough
Words hold power, essentially as vital as every second to its hour
but if your actions don't serve as a reaction to your words
Then you're like a sword hanging on a wall, potentially powerful and yet so
powerless
And yet you still managed to sever her soul
She's leaking feelings of bloody self blame
Ashamed that she poured out her heart
until she realized its the reason behind her art
So instead of wallowing in the pain she thought she couldn't stitch back
She laid back and inhaled into a stronger version of herself
Now she bows with gratitude
And thanks you for being you
To God, you're worth more than the stars combined
so when you look at the scars that are left behind
Smile with pride and your heart open wide
Cuz stormy rays are the days that bring tomorrows
rainbows and sunshine

This poem is like death by a thousand cuts. Each words leaves an impression. The pictures that were painted burn into the minds eye. It was powerfully depicted how one may talk the talk, but not live by the code. The strength and resolve in the end was the icing on the cake. It was gratifying to see the near death make one wiser and stronger. Inspires a lot of deep thought.

A beautifully written poem with nice message.

especially these lines;
To believe in the dignity of a man is not enough
Words hold power, essentially as vital as every second to its hour
but if your actions don't serve as a reaction to your words
Then you're like a sword hanging on a wall, potentially powerful and yet so
powerless

such a strong theme .. our healing requires forgiveness to be sure .. well said .. i feel inspired to be more honest with myself and others .. in a relationship dishonesty is what dulls our power but when we strike with it the damage is worse than if it were sharp ;) again .. love the theme and lessons in your poem .. very empowering ...
