My Hope


My hope is someday my words are weaponized and used for good.
Poetic weaponry used to discourage hate.
Words that hit the soft places, like a boxer dissecting his opponent.
Combinations and rhythm that quickly catch your attention, but leave you defenseless.
A volley that ends with a period and there’s nothing left to say.
I want the most violent thing a person ever uses to just be words….

Strength is not destroying your enemy, but changing them inside, changing their mind.

  1. Very true. The power of words is stronger than any physical pain. Like when my mother repeats over and over “I should have killed you. Should never give birth to you” it hurts more than when she actually tried killing me… sorry, your poem woke up some sleeping depression haha πŸ˜€
    But when used positively, your poem is spot on. ❀

    • Thank you Jess ❀ I'm so sorry to hear that, how cruel your mother was? (As if we can even call her a "mother"!! Her words did kill you back then and caused you to suffer greatly, but look now at you. You're nothing like her, I see how you talk about your child, you're a loving mother and very very sweet person =) Despite everything, you have chosen the path of love and peace.
      Much, much to you my friend ❀ ❀

    • Thank you so much ❀ I might be a dreamer but I truly believe that words can be our true weapon in this world, words can invade minds and guide people from hate and war to love and peace.
