Fragments Of Me (Words)

Fragments of me

My father emphasized the importance of being a man of your word.

My mother recited sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you.

I remember the night I learned about the power of words.

We visited a friend of my father. Mingling adults with drinks in hand and hyperactive children filled every room of the dinner party.

Not interested in watching my father drink, I sought refuge. [  ]

    • I like your work, just lately many of us have speaking of WORDS in varous contexts and how they all but break our hearts. Of their double meanings, their origins, changing meaning, invention…:-)
