Right On Target

Bullseye with arrow in the middle

I gave life to a word today

I released it in haste

It formed like an arrow

Piercing its target deep

In regret I tried

To take it back

But it still

Left a

Mark

I gave life to a word today

Releasing it with tenderness

It formed like an a heart

Hugging its target tight

Awaking lost dreams

To hope again

Happily it

Left a

Mark

Be careful how you speak and what words you bring to life as they all leave a mark and make a difference.

A Word Like an Arrow

Heart with arrow
Harshly spoken into the night air

The word like a poison arrow landed

Seemingly twas shot without a care

Harshly spoken into the night air

Its speaker seemed quite unaware

That a young loving heart was badly branded

Harshly spoken into the night air

The word like a poison arrow landed
