Every word that you hear
with your two fragile ears
can make you or break you
or stick with you like glue.
With the power words have,
a laugh is not worth the pain inflicted.
Words can cause pain, like a gas emitted.
And those hurtful words can never be repealed.
Broken bones can generally be healed.
A broken heart can never completely mend
because the cracks will refuse to fully relent.
A scar upon an innocent soul,
a damaged heart that will never be whole.
Before you say any judgemental words,
really think about what they’re worth.
If it’s worth hurting someone for a few little snickers,
then you may as well have pulled the trigger.
