No Body's Friend

My sister shared this a few weeks ago, and it was a good reminder for me. 

No body's Friend

My name is gossip.
I have no respect for justice.
I maim without killing.
I break hearts and ruin lives.
I am cunning and malicious and gather strength with age.
The more I am quoted the more I am believed.
My victims are helpless.
They cannot protect themselves against me because I have no name or face.
To track me down is impossible.
The harder you try the more elusive I become.
I am no body's friend.
Once I tarnish a reputation it's never the same.
I topple governments and wreck marriages.
I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights, heartaches and indigestion.
Even my name hisses.
I am called Gossip.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
