1. Sticks and Stones- A Poem

 

Sticks and stones may break my bones,

but words can also hurt me.

Sticks and stones may break my bones,

but your words can still torment me.

 

Sticks and stones may break only skin,

while your words are ghosts that haunt me.

Sticks and stones may break only skin,

but so can a razor against my wrist.

 

Pain from words left its scar,

on mind and heart that’s tender.

With words like yours that rip me apart,

it’s hard to stop the track I’m heading in.

 

Sticks and stones may break my bones,

but words can also hurt me.

Sticks and stones may break my bones,

and with this note I hope you forgive me.
