Linda Winchell

Rookie - 9 Points (still working on it! / Chicago Illinois)


Lives can be changed
with just one misunderstood word.
Taken out of context
of what you've read or have heard.

Just for a moment
things seem so unreal
of what your now thinking
or what you might feel.

We need to maybe learn
how to read between the lines?
Of what another is really saying
and not that within our own minds.

This is when words won't be misunderstood
In their can'ts and their won'ts
when they're cans and shoulds.
