None to say

Standard

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.

 

 

 

About Nancy Burton Wolfe

I love to write. I love the process - brainstorming, drafting, editing, revising, publishing. I love it all. And, over the past few years, I've found not only satisfaction with writing, but success as well. After retiring from a career in education, I found God calling me to use this gift to help provide for my family while I help further the Kingdom. Other than being with my family, there are few things I would rather do than create beauty with words - or read other beautiful writing. I'm a Believer, a wife, a mom, stepmom & grandmom and a writer.
