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
