Until Further Notice

February 4, 2008
By Jessie Kroll, Dunlap, IA

To hear the words
To feel the pain
They say the words hurt more than the hits

That I believe
That I know
To be hit in the face
To have a fork thrown at you
To get your face smashed in food that had been in the trash.

That I will take
That I will take anyday instead of...

"I don't care about you"
"You make my life miserable"
"I will always like your sister more than you"

because the bruises and marks will heal but...

The words pierce
You think about them over and over
They cut your heart in ways unrepairable

I fight to forgive...
To forget
And I will be fighting

Until further notice
