Sticks and Stones

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.
