National Poetry Month Day 30: Words Matter #NaPoWriMo

This last poem, for Day 30 of National Poetry Month, speaks for itself...




Words Matter

Tossed, strewn, bandied,
careless language stew
slights, happenstance, hurt
that wandering miscue


I love you ~ doesn't mean it
I miss you ~ a cheater
who never thinks twice

Player ~ Lover
Philanderer ~ Husband
Secure ~ Fearful
Respect ~ Disdain
Selfishness ~ Compassion

You’re ugly ~ hates the mirror
and too fat ~ binge dieting
self-esteem just excised

Nerd ~ Individual
Geek~ Distinctive
Independent ~ Alone
Proud ~ Afraid
Labels ~ Acceptance
