Gossip Doesn’t Bruise; It Only Ricochets

Those who whispered about me

I no longer fear them

I honestly feel sad

As I’d rather know the truth

Because they don’t see what I faced

Only the way I reacted because of certain events

Which doesn’t excuse poor decisions

Or any emotions not properly handled

But they had no clue what led to them

And maybe it wouldn’t have mattered if they knew

But it would give them insight to my depression and pain

Now years later I see the gossip was spread

But it didn’t destroy me

I still grew strong and overcame my trauma

And as for their talking behind my back

The truth finally came to light
