What are the word we used to hear as kids?
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But words can never hurt me.
I don’t believe that. Words can hurt. Words can make a person lose all reason to live. Words can bring up shit, that has been stuffed down under, but the garbage lid always pops off.
Words can cause a mental illness which can take weeks, months and maybe never heal completely . Words can cause emotional drama, turn a smile upside down, ruin a good day .
The problem becomes your personal ball and chain, dragging so close behind you. You are constantly aware you are not alone . Words can take away what ever self-purpose you thought you had.
Words can erase any trust you had in people. Words can make you wish the sorrow, guilt and pain away by any means. Words can cause doubt when listening to someone trying to help pull you back up out of the alleyways .
Words can cause a bitter taste, break-up of families, make you homeless, feel unwanted and unloved. Words can cause headaches, too many tears and the feeling of non existence .
The biggest thing words do to a person is cause self-doubt .
Ugly, hateful, this could be
Take a shot of triple me
Turn it twist my heart in two
Do what you want, do what you do
When your poison hits too deep
I will lay down and go to sleep
Don’t want to feel this pain today
Sleep and hope for a brand new day.
