Words are powerful, even if you are just... joking.

I freeze,

my jaw tightening,

hands clenching as I bit my tongue.


Just let it go,

just let it go,

walk away plays through my mind.


Those words though,

the ones they throw around so carelessly,

continue to play through my mind.


They are looking at me now,

waiting for a reaction,

to what they have just said.


I have to let it go though,

I can’t make scene,

they are to ignorant,


they don’t understand,

that joking about those things,

saying those things,

are not right.


So I bite my tongue,

Swallow the words down,

And walk away.


I just wish they could understand,

That somethings,

You don’t joke about.
