Sticks and Stones

Sticks and stones may break my bones

But my bones can heal

Say what you need to say

Say what you want to say

But say not what will break me

 

Sticks and stones may break my bones

But words will break me

 

Those 140 characters

Those hashtags under my pictures

That video you posted about me

Those hurt

I feel torn

My heart ripped apart in twenty million places

And I've made a wall too strong for myself to mend

No, there's no stiching this wall back together

 

Those 140 characters

Those hashtags and videos

Pixels on a screen have power

Use your power wisely

 

Sticks and stones may break my bones

But your words can hurt me
