Words once sliced through me; and wounded soul;

hateful words; meant to reduce my pride.

Heaped one upon the other the words took their toll;

depression made believe words couldn’t be denied.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Years would pass before I found will enough to leave.

When I did, I learned that words can be said as lies;

to manipulate ;destroy esteem; and deceive;

I raise my head up high; my heart no longer cries.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Words can be beautiful; with healing and emotion;

can be kind and true; full of hope and inspiration.

They don’t have to hurt; used in love and devotion;

promoting faith; sooth a pain; sweet word's creation.
