Park Bench 

“Ouch! Come on, you again? Why do you keep coming to me to sit? I don’t know why you choose me when there are all those other benches sitting around. I thought I was full just a few minutes ago. What did you say? This bench was empty? Are you saying I am not worth more than a place to sit?” 

Ten minutes later… 

“Phew! Thank you for getting up! I can’t believe that I have to withstand all of the weight on my legs. 
Didn’t you know that I have other people to support?”  

Finally, alone.

Word of the Day Challenge: unspoken

Unspoken Words

If words are left unspoken 
and people care to know 
let them know you care for them 
no matter where you go. 

Spoken words that come and go 
from the mouth of men 
are much more useful in our life 
than wordless acts back then.  

Think ahead ‘bout what you say 
to others in your life 
hurtful words will bring nothing 
but heartache and some strife.
