they are


 spoken by those who are close

they are


emitted from minds who are respected

they are


performed by those who are loved

they are


inflicted by one’s own sense of self

they are


deep within the bowels of one’s psyche

they can

be constructive

they can

be damaging

they cannot

    You may forget exactly what a person said and did … but you never forget how that person made you feel.

    Beautiful Kim 🙂

      Thank you:). The feelings never go away. No matter how hard or much you try to mask them.

    Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me! That is the biggest lie ever! Words have the power to destroy or build up! So many use them to destroy. The wounds from words can last a very long time. Beautifully written!
