Words as an Inheritance

I believe that words can be passed down through generations similar to a financial inheritance.

Think of a time when you were a  child and you were reprimanded for something you did or didn’t do.  Maybe those words were accompanied with a sense of anger or frustration on the part of the speaker. Do you recall the impact of their words and how that made you feel?

Maybe both, the emotions and the words, imparted something to you, but the words become like seeds that dropped down into the soil of your soul.   That seed opens, and spreads its roots just the same as every tomato seed after it is planted in a garden.  It’s in the seed’s genetic code to take root and produce.

Isn’t it funny, weird, or even scary when you say something and realize you sounded just like your parents? What you repeat is what was planted in you. Your words can create an inheritance in the life of those around you.  They can shape the path of your life and they can shape the path of your children– just like an inheritance.Word seeds_Cline

The idea of spallation of the heart

I was reading through a physics book one night and came across the word “spallation.” Ha! I am married to a rocket scientist (truly) and he never mentioned this process to me. I began to read more on this subject and the result of that reading is the poem below. Survive is very personal to me and for me. In so many ways, words have been used against me to discredit things that I have, or have not done, and frankly… well, negative people will almost always be negative even if they are smiling when they say it. I choose light! It is the best way to walk without falling. KC.

Spallation is a process in which fragments of material (spall) are ejected from a body due to impact or stress (Wikipedia).

Survive ~ Kim Cline2018
Talking of things you know not of
Using the expression “On the tip of the tongue”
Reality is captured
Like a caged, wild animal is contained but not tamed
Words used to express one’s superiority over another
Become the augmentation of air—whereas
Words hit their mark resulting
In spallation of the heart gain a critical advantage
Increasing power over the wild creature contained
But when the wild is loosed from its box
The power paradigm shifts
Overtakes and strips bare the contrived
Without a sword
Without a whim
Sheer will to express the deeply ingrained intuition
Survive
