Words Heard

It is one moment that changes a life. 

I don't care about landmarks; 

This isn't what I speak of. 

In my head, there are echoes of kindness, 

Whispered softly but still heard. 

Bitterness I've seen when it was

Quietly behind my back haunts. 

I remember these phrases, 

These moments, 

That live in my mind and therefore

Change my life.
