Words are like darts

Sharpened and venom coated

Intended to injure

Aimed with precision

And released with the force

Of anger drawn  well.


When the wound starts

To fester  unreported

“Tis better to endure

A clean incision

Than live with the chaos

Of gangrenous cells

    If only we understood the real power of words and the havoc or peace they can bring in their wake…well said Nadira…

    So well said.. I wonder how many understand that those wounds fester as they rot away at our core…

      Thank you Sue. Have learnt the hard way that rancour and hurt , hurts none but the one who is holding on to it:-)

        Yes so very true… Wish more would understand that.. But we all at times fall pray to those emotions and it can be a tough lesson.. But we all of us have much letting GO to do before we Move on.. Blessings to you
