Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. That's the saying isn't it? To not let the words of someone else get the better of you? But how can you not let them get the best of you when they haunt you daily? How can you ignore them when they are lurking right around the corner?
We want to believe that the cushion to our wound will always be there for us no matter what. We want to believe that there will be someone by our side through it all. But it's the words that we use that can do the exact opposite of what we want. Words make people leave Words can make people stay Words define how we live and who is involved in it.
Nothing is said without an intention, It may not be direct but it will do damage. Damage that could either be fix with more words or damage that will stay forever wounded. Words cause the hurt that surrounds us today Words cause the joy that we are all addicted to
So the next time you use the words you have been blessed with, Think Just think long and hard And then, just then may you say what could very well dictate your future.
This poem is about the words that are used in everyday life and how they hold much more power than people like to think. Words are the key to the set backs and the advantages in life, it is just a matter of how you put them together.
