When in rage, words so piercing are darted out from deep within. Little do we realize at that time how painful they would be to the receiver. Or how deeply engraved it carves into their hearts and mind. The painful deed is done. So deep is it that even though we are forgiven for the words, the mark has been made in their hearts and time might just heal but...the scar is there to ever remind of the hurt.
We on the other hand just console ourselves saying whatever was said was done in haste and nothing was meant from the depth of our heart. And we just move on.
Is it needed at all??
