The guilt of having been a fool.
The pain of a word spoken in anger.
How long does it last?
Why is the worst cess often spewed at the one we love the most?

How numerous the opportunities
to hurt somebody with words such as these?
Immeasurable, the scope of pain availed
when putting somebody else first has failed.
How quickly such be learned and fired at will.
O when will these lips learn to just be still?!
For Jesus has a grace that knows no bound.
Can the same, inside us each, be found?

How long does it last?

It must not last long enough, because I keep making the same mistake over and over!  Please pray for me.  The one that I hurt this time deserves far better.  She deserves the finest.
