In Love & Light....

It is a sad world when others like to cast doubt and inflict pain with just a few clicks on a keyboard...and yet it happens...A poem of hope for all those that may have been touched by the ones who reside in shadows...

In Love & Light...Believe In Yourself...

Don't let others pull you down,
with words that cut or bring you low,
Don't give them the pleasure of your pain,
Don't reap the crop they tried to sow..

I let this happen, I felt so hurt..
And could reason not, why it was done.
What was achieved to be so cruel..
Why did they play the vindictive one?

I know that I'm not of that breed...
The words I use, support and praise..
My soul is brighter than the ones,
who cause such doubt and disarray.

I never could inflict that pain,
that some may find they have to spill..
What part of them is damaged so,
they love to spread this dark ill-will?

But taking strength from what I believe..
I rise above such petty strikes..
They may reside in shadows formed,
But I reside, in Love and Light.

Thank you all for such great feedback on my work. I think most of us are aware that there are problems with intimidation going on through the internet, even touching us here on Wikinut..and it saddens me that when there are so many beautiful words out there to choose in our incredible language, there are those that take the path of of anger and bitterness, hurting others without thought..I will never understand what their soul gains from this, apart from the darkness of shadows. We are writers, let us write..not attack and destroy others, that reflects more on ourselves than it does on the victims that are being abused in this manner... Light will always chase shadows away..

Sadder still is when we are caught in the cross-fire between writer friends. It's hard to console one without courting the displeasure of the other. What's left is to be the peacemaker that we should be: With love, and love alone, we help douse the fire for peace to prevail. My own humble opinion as a Libra.

Wonderful share, great friend.

Bless you Buzz, I really couldn't agree more with that..I have so much pleasure publishing on Wikinut, but that is being gradually eroded by the on-going situation..It saddens me beyond tears..

Oh, Wow! This poem is so beautifully crafted. And the message you send is clear. You're right - some people are damaged.

Light and Love, that is what I try to fill myself with, my mind, and everything. I also try to share it with everyone. Hopefully, I'm doing a good job, haha.

Lovely share Songbird.
I think everyone can gain something from this, whether you've been hurt or not.

Such a powerful poem with a strong message to all. I agree with all your sentiments here Bev and support your words. As writers we need to support each other and respect each others views even though these views may not be the same all the time. A great write and thanks for sharing.

Sadly, there are those who derive pleasure from causing others pain. I have never understood that mindset. You have expressed it all so beautifully already, so I will just stop rambling. :-)

Love and light
your words truly shed
carrying to the reader
what must be spread
Give me your hand
and together we'll go
spreading this truth (because)
the world must know
Thanks for sharing!
