Impact of Words -a poem
Impact of Words
Sticks and stones may break my bones,
But words will never hurt me
This saying is a lie
Words can hurt just as much as the pain of a broken bone
"I hate you"
"You're a coward"
"What is your deal?"
"You disgust me"
"No one would even care if you were dead"
Sayings like those can make one feel utterly worthless
Don't let people's words define you
Don't let people's words break you
Be true to yourself
People that always throw hateful words at you
And always point out your mistakes aren't worth having in your life
So let them go
Remove the toxic, hateful people from your life
No one is perfect,
But it's sad how so many times we come in contact with people who act and speak as if they are perfect
To those people I say:
"Get off your pedestal and stop using your words to hurt and degrade others.
Because in reality, you are just as screwed up as everyone else."
Words can hurt
Words do make an impact
