Useless though they call me
Not caring for my tears
Scathing words they hurl
Can’t stop the laughter in my ears
Are all others truly like this?
Taking what they can without any thought?
Hatred spewed out to bring them their bliss
Even as closed I keep my own mouth
Does it truly bring you what you wish?
Words can do far more damage than many think. When bullied through a force other than physical, you do not come away unscathed.
