Five Minute Friday – Beyond

A torrent of rash reactions
fermenting fears and judgment
rushes to an end
of bruised egos and broken hearts.
I watch from the side,
unattached and beyond
but affected.

Words hold weight and, when wielded outside of integrity, they can batter a heart to mush. It is regrettable at best and very difficult to witness when one can truly do nothing to stop it. May we all choose what we say with consideration. May we make the choice to bless and not to bludgeon.

    1. Thank you Laura. Yes, I was thinking of one situation in particular but hope that the poem is universal enough to apply to many. :) Thanks for the visit and the comment. :)

  3. Ouch, you must have witnessed something recently for this to be your first thought. It is horrible witnessing or even receiving verbal attacks like that.

    Have a super blessed day!
