Looking in the Mirror

Spiritual Revelations for those seeking Humanity in Humans ~~CordieB.


The following is submitted for Mr. Knowit All’s Friday Flash 55.   , whom I discovered via Just Paisley    A Flash 55 is a poem or story written in 55 words.  Here’s mine….

Unspoken truths are

Sometimes far more destructive

Than ill spoken words spewed

In anger or frustration…

Whilst the latter can hurt, and never

Be retrieved…

The unspoken truths

often lead to

harsher Ill spoken words…

or even worst…

The unspoken truths

produce a subdued cancer that

sickens the soul;

slowly deteriorating

and rotting the heart



Quote for the Day.

"Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are — chaff and grain together — certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."
— Dinah Mulock

Sometimes, when I’m unsure just how to say something, I meditate on it.  I ask God to help me with the right words to express how I feel.  And then there are those times when I ask God to hold my tongue too…at least until I’m calm enough to speak them with compassion and conviction.

 Peace, Light and Love. . . CordieB.

let free – ty for the remind.

Cordie your poem is awesome and so dead on. I particularly like the words
“The unspoken truths
produce a subdued cancer that
sickens the soul;”

I will have to visit the site where you found Flash 55. Looks like fun!

Psychribe. Thanks psychscribe. Those unspoken truths can lay dormant like cancer in remission, but sadly they reemerge in some form or fashion. Hope you’re feeling better. Keeping you in my prayers, C.
