Words

Words,
All they were is words.
No knife edge, no rope burn,
No stitches, no itches,
No pain,

Think again,
The words they cut,
They leave a scar,
You can't see,
but not far.

Don't be fooled,
The sharp tongue speaks.
Don't take
The havoc that it wreaks.

A sharp tongue lashes out,
Lies and carries on.
Hurting all around it,
like an acid thrown upon.

Call the dragon what it is,
A fire breathing monster,
When you feel the pain
of others bad words,

You must fight, and
Slay the dragon
again,
and
again.

  1. You nailed it. The childhood rhyme of "sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me" was absolutely wrong.

  2. Thanks Judy for your comments. I completely agree. Words can be hurtful especially when you have had to learn to live with physical pain. Best wishes Judy..Mary
