I hate fighting.
When mean and nasty things are
said in the heat of the moment.
And when the temperature has cooled down
and we have all made nice,
do we just forget those things?
Do we put them down to just being 'fight talk'
and move on and forget about it.
Or do we have to stop and think if those words are the truth,
and they bubbled up to the surface when the person felt pushed to the edge,
but actually they are the root of what the person really thinks?
the words are still hurting,
they have left bruises from the fight.
But bruises heal,
