The hurt she felt
to say those words
could not be healed 
in a thousand years

For her self esteem
was buried so low
it could not be risen
and feared to grow

Those three words
she was put to say
will hurt forever
through night and through day

For when she was asked
"and why is that?"
she had nothing to say

She just faked a chuckle
and went her way
but the hurt is left
and will always stay.

    You are right we need to remember our words can make lastly negative or positive impressions. You always make a positive impression! Light & Love

    Another compelling poem, Maryam! I like the ending lines: "but the hurt is left/and will always stay." This is precise and factual, great work, my friend. Ruben.

    Yes, we can't take words back once we leave our mouths. Sometimes I just insert a foot and try to leave it there for a while. Words can be very hurtful. Beautiful poem, Maryam!

    I wish I was your big sister, I'd I' least give them a piece of my mind! Cause I don't want to be bad as them! Light & Love
