Let Our Words Be Mindful - Poem by Anita Atina

Let our words be mindful of feelings,
For even when it is not our intention to hurt another,
Words may evoke feelings, unintended,
Or reopen wounds from the past.

Let our words be mindful of their power,
To elevate, inspire, love and lead; as well as,
To hurt, tear, poison and destroy the human spirit,
Once released, words spread the aroma of our spirit.

Heed this call, o community of,
Word writers, sharing your spirit,
Let your words not attack and wound,
Bring forth your light, to illuminate a world groping in the dark.

    So when it is meant served with acid reign, the attacked should what? duck lower anita? or run away? Or stand and fight your ground and your right to be a member of a community? Believe it that all ascerbic attacks here are deliberately designed to cause as much grief as possible! I do appreciate your sentiments in good faith and I do goet the hurting feelings without even realising it, but this abuse is deep rooted here and I allege! aided, even encouraged by the Editor here and the else can accounts be plundered and writers works deleted without reason or notice? this is a thoroughly badly run site and I have it in my sights! Take care....they will come after you next otherwise! A hand full of misfits ruin this site. Yes words are a terrible tool in JUST WRONG hands....

    Waving at you
