flushed ~NaPoWriMo Day 22

Every time I kid myself that I am ok

that I am past it

I get slapped upside the head again

with the truth

how can all the progress that I have made

get flushed down the toilet

with just one word from you?

  1. Why do we allow one person that much power? I say this because I have allowed it… Well done!

  2. Some people have one goal in life and that is to hurt others. If you’re the person being hurt, just remember that you don’t have to play the game. A cruel and hateful person gets off on your participation and can’t knows he can’t play alone.

  3. Good description of how fast things can change between two people especially during the changes we are going through now.

  4. Oh yes, like a single button that needs to be de-activated! It is fascinating the way our brains and hearts work are connected to a word.
