    They Hurt The Worst.

    The things that people say can hurt just as much if not more then any type of physical pain. I try to be careful with what I say so I don't end up hurting or offending anyone unless I'm really pissed off because I've been hurt by words a countless number of times, and I know It...

    Condition of Your Hart

    I was always taught that the words we choose is a mirror into our hart and soul. If all we ever do is dish out angry words, spite, indifference and negative attitudes then others know that is what you are on the inside. Speaking to others in a way to make yourself feel better...

    I Have

    I have had many thrown at me, precisely aimed daggars, yet none of them will ever hurt as much as the ones that I have thrown. They are the ones that haunt and I regret the most, the ones that leave the deepest of scars and the ones I recall with pain. I have a...
