Inner strength

Words hurt the worst,
They’re like miseles,
On target,
And hungry for pain.
What do you do,
Ignore them?
But they still hurt,
Because they caught you unaware.
The cruel intentions made themselves at home the minute you felt that shock,
They’re like thorns,
Something you can suppress no matter what,
The more you press down to hide your true feelings,
The pain remains.
Doubts growing by the minute,
Suddenly you’re estranged from that person,
The weight of words is greater than you expect,
Verbal lashes that should be considered before hurling them at someone,
The strength you show as you sit and process the words creates a new you.
