Slingshots


though sticks and stones may break your bones

hateful words can be more of a curse
they fly through the air like arrow heads
and may injure you even worse
no armour exists that will stop the hurt
as they splinter into your heart
no salve has been made to ease the pain
as their meaning rips you apart
with hindsight you'll suffer again and again
reliving them in your mind
and though memories fade the injuries laid  
are not of the healing kind
so it's silly to charm and say words cannot harm
they can scar you even worse
than those sticks and stones which may break your bones

but won't stay in your mind like a curse
