The words we use to speak our minds
should be carefully chosen
and well thought out

For the things we say
echo in eternity
in the thoughts of those who listen

Tenderness and love,
they come and go
but criticism is never forgotten

Forgiveness is a slippery slope;
when the words you use
imprint harshly onto delicate minds

Like the branding of skin;
an unnecessary reminder
of the capability of people
to be truly unkind
