No Offense


These words

still bother me.


Because when they are said

it means:

get ready to be offended.


For whatever reason,

we will have those times

where words are spoken

or said where we

not agree with the author.


The words bring no solace

to what will be said.


Sometimes the warning

is only mentioned in passing,

not meaning anything at all.


The person might share strong opinions,

and will not care how it affects you.


Instead they share the phrase,

as if it will dampen the wounds

the words causes.


But that is far from the truth.



Offense will be taken,

the question remains,

how much weight are the words

of those who offend you?
