Rotten Words - Poem by Bri Lynne

They said I'd be stuck
Stuck nowhere, forever
They said worse
Forgotten curses
The road I took was long
Sparse and questionable
At times
But I held their words
Closer to my heart than any others
Tighter than anything at all
They were never believed
Never even believable
Though life made it's own suggestions
The choices I've stumbled into
Tired or true
Cannot be wrong
Lessons merely are
Those words had followed me so far
And just
As I slammed violently
Into one more rocky bottom
Crushed, they were
Beautiful black pieces of glass
Underneath my feet
A shattered vase of rotten words
I'd never once believed
