Wicked Bad Girl
The imprint left by abuse
stays there, forever.
Jo Mac Del Cas
In the tranquility of my mind,
your sickening voice roars.
My strength was stronger
than your voice.
You are long gone,
But your loud abusive words
Linger in my ears.
Your words filled with fire
still burn in my ears.
I have learned to blend your verbal abuse
into the universe.
I don’t care anymore.
The bitterness of some words
Lingers on, in the soul,
Long after they evaporate into the air.
The imprints of abuse lasts forever
in the memory of a victim.
Lynn Laveau Lund
the bruises and scars on the heart
that can never be seen
but can last for a lifetime.
Rational Akrofi Akuffo
Our approach to a situation
determines it’s outcome.
Choose gentle words always.
The voices in our heads
do not start out as our own.
One of the hardest things to do
is overcome them and silence them.
Mylene E. Ramos
The echo of the noise
from the outside world is unbearable.
Don’t let it ruin your inner peace.
What’s inside of you is too powerful;
it can either build or destroy you.
When all around you is frantic,
harsh and cacophonic,
meditate and feel a healing tranquility.
Phyllis Snider Boyer
Harsh words remain long after spoken,
leaving their scars on our spirit.
May the negative power of his words
make you the positive stronger woman
who will never let another man
destroy her soul.
Take him out of your head.
You got lots to do
Don’t let the past shout into you.
Open your eyes to the world in front you..
Never allow someone close to you
to fill your head
with their negative or abusive talk.
Words have so much power.
I am committed
to the purity of my own light
in spite of the noise around me.
My lips wont speak
what my brain bleeds
There is a darker side &
A lighter side within us,
Orchestrating our thoughts & actions.
We need to keep a check
On our darker side
To have a positive impact
In our lives.
Sticks and Stones may break my bones but,
Words will break my spirit.
The shadow of abuse always lingered,
The bruises and scars still tingle,
She carved herself from them,
much stronger, much better
The screech of abuse made her soul much wiser
Verbal abuse may not harm the body,
but it does harm the soul for a lifetime
What hurts more?
The hurtful words that were said…
Or replaying them repeatedly in the head!
Susan Fair Arakelian
Never let the shadows of the past
tell you what to do next
My silence speaks louder
than your words.
Meltdown versus Meditation!
Here’s a clear winner!
Be kind to yourself…
You can be your own worst critic
Emotional abuse is a weapon
used to belittle its victims, to break their will.
I have the power and choice
to remain calm and peaceful in any situation
Samiha Al Ghussain
A strong woman is a woman
who learned to control and tame her emotions,
thoughts, and impulses
Sometimes the best reply is ‘no reply’
because no words can express the battle
going on between your mind and heart.
Unlike the calm face,
her soul was loud
You can defeat the chaos outside
only when you defeat the chaos
which is there within yourself
