Poem: Only Words Can Kill Me


Only words can kill me
Bullets and knives just hurt
Scars and pain come naturally
Because there is always worse
Take your pain and ignore it
Turn it into hate
It used to be so meaningful
But now it’s far too late
Everyone has got a story
Everyone’s had it bad
No point in dwelling on it
To continue would be sad
When all that’s left is all you knew
And nothing else remains
What’s the point of pointing out
How others are the same?
Makes me want to run away
And plug up my ears
No more words of hatred
No more thread of tears
