Wowza Poem

I found this poem months ago, and saved it in an un-sent e-mail. I ran across it while I was cleaning out my inbox and was struck anew by how true (and convicting) it is!

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I hope you like it, too!
