None to say

I have all the words yet none to say.

I am hopeful yet perplexed.

I am grateful yet unsettled.

I pray for the best yet witness the worst.

And I can’t bear the words.

We long for words that

brighten, encourage, lift, heal, unite.

We are deafened by words that

dull, depress, crush, bruise, divide.

Words … I cherish and piece them together with love.

Words … they scorn and pull souls apart.

I can’t bear it.
