Growing From Words

Chemicals of my body
Spring into action
Primitive reverberations
Of fight or flight
At any recriminations
Claw at my chest
Unbearable pain
As I absorb words
Passing comments
Of an unconscious mind
Canker in my cells
Decompose my confidence
To stagnant rot
Awaiting a white knight
Until I use my consciousness
To lay these torments
As fertilizer at my feet
That I may grow from them
They make me stronger
My rudimentary responses
Supporting me always
To my betterment
