Wellunattentioned

We say so many things that we wish
No one will hold us to
To sound wise
To be helpful
To soothe pain that has its place
To soften blows that have been deserved
To pick up pieces that needed to be shattered
Hindering a stronger mosaic
Waiting to be created
And yet in our rush to comfort
We give the hand still bleeding
a knife to further sever
We give a heart  trying to hear
its own voice
a cheery ultimatum
We judge and conclude before we let the broken ever have the time to heal…
