Mama Told Me

Last updated on January 11, 2024

Mama Told Me

My mama told me

sticks and stones

may break my bones

that words

will never harm me


But the scars that words leave

are harsher than the deepest wounds


The scars that words leave

annihilate me to depths of my soul


The scars that words leave

scream at the unknown


The scars that words leave

shout for vengeance


They are just words

I tell myself

as I cry myself to sleep


These words are not defenseless

I will have my way


Another word another lesion

Another word another lesson
