When someone hurts or offends us, our reflex reaction is to return the favor. Many times, it is tempting to say exactly what is on our mind without mincing it.
However, is it really necessary? Would it be difficult if we first pause, breathe (sigh even if you need to) and think before we let out our emotions?
Words can make or break a soul…and the trouble is, once we said it, we cannot take it back. Sure we can apologize. Nonetheless, is SORRY enough to undo the pain? I leave it up to you to answer that question.
In the meantime, if you like this poem please go and visit my website at https://harpingbyapixiecom.wordpress.com. It is a smorgasbord type of blog. I dabble with spirituality, philosophy, travel, love and life in general…as well as some taboo topics.
And, as always, I appreciate your comments and likes…deeply, from the heart. Thanks POETRY PASSION for being part of your team.
