Why on Some Days I love the Words I Write more than I love some of the people in My Life

Kim and Her Words Sitting in a Tree….

Days exist in which I love the words I write. I, at times, love these words more than some of the people in my life. This is why…

The words I write have never spoken harshly to me.
Likewise the words I write have never once ignored me.

They have never insulted, demeaned, or chastised me.

My written words have, on occasion, revealed needed insights.
These words have also cajoled, pushed, prodded and cheered me to new
ways of thinking.

My words have never hidden the truth, nor have they shredded me
for daring to tell it.

My written words believe I have the right to exist.
They stake their claim to this simple idea.

My words will battle for me, the truth, and what is right.

These words place me first and refuse to let me hide.

My words weave a sense of safety for me- a literary hug,
and I am better for it.

And for all those people who refuse to do the same for me as my words, I really
must question-
Why are you in my life?

  1. Your originality and power of expression never stop amazing me. This is the very first of your posts the point of which I don’t quite understand. I hope it doesn’t sound non-supportive to say that … I am just curious. I guess you are simply light-years ahead of me. 🙂

    • OH, thank you for your kind words. With this posting, I was trying to show myself that if I can write all of these wonderful words in regards to my life, that I truly care about myself and I want to make sure that those who share my life also care about me in the same way. (sorry for the run-on sentence!! ) 🙂

  2. I missed some of your posts. Love this one. And you are right. When others in our lives don’t treat us this way, we need to question why we give them priority. I guess they still have a place, but maybe not where they are now. It is a beautiful sentiment and I am glad you find solace in words in this way…
