Words Leave Lips by Kelli J. Gavin



Words leave lips

Too harsh

Too often


Words hurt souls

Too rough

Too deep


Stop and think

Pause, just for a moment


What happened?

What happened to you?

Why did you let it?


Those words came at you

You took them

You reached for them

You received them


Why did you take them in?

Did you long for them?

Did you expect the hurt in them?


You speak those words

You run to those words

You use those words as if a gift


If they hurt you

They will hurt others


Throw them away

Throw them in the ocean

Deep and far and fierce


Rid yourself

Rid your mind

Your mouth

Your heart


Your life doesn’t need them

No one needs them


Stop reaching for them

Stop sharing them

Stop gifting them


They aren’t needed  

They aren’t wanted

Will never be appreciated


Words leave lips

Too harsh

Too often
