Words Words Words

Lies, spite, hurtful words,
Spoken from hearts of pain –
Why would someone speak that way?
Spitting out words to hurt, and maim?

In my lifetime which words
Of life or death
Have been spoken over me?
Some good, too many bad –
My fault? Can it be?

So hard to be cared for and loved,
To find people wanting to be
Positive about the way I am . . .
But no matter:
My God’s truth has set me free.

  1. There are so many words I wish I could take back–and many I wish I’d never heard. God bless you abundantly today.
