"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Even with something so small,
One thing can start it all
A drop of rain,
A book written in vain.
A note passed,
Truth won’t last
One word said,
Another soul dead
Think about what you say
Because one day
it
Will
Matter.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

AMAZING!!! I strongly recommend you a book written by Annie F. Downs, (if you haven't read it yet.) it's called "Speak Love," and it's talking about words matter. Because words matter. Amazing job, as always Liv.Harris ^_^ thanks for sharing this!

I love how you pretty much say to watch your words because most people say all of these little things that slowly break us down inside and then we don't stop until it's too late.

Leave nothing but footprints,
Take nothing but pictures,
Kill nothing but time.

Like your poem, it is short but says a lot
