Words Hurt

Words hurt…invisible wounds take so much time to heal. Writing, talking, sharing with a trusted adult sometimes can ease the journey.

Soul Carries


Words Hurt

Trying to ignore the the words that you wrote, trying to rise above the hate that you spoke.

Feeling the squeeze, makes me want to fall to my knees, my hands on my scalp trying to get those words out.

It feels like a bad dream, I try to wake, but I just hear my scream.

Your lies have ripped at my core, violated my being, crushed my soul and left it helpless on the floor.

Desperately trying to make sense of your hate, trying to grasp why you would treat any human this way.

Sticks and stones may hurt these bones, but those words will forever haunt me.

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
