Sticks and stones never broke my bones

but your words did so much more.

Sticks and stones may make me bruise

but your words left me scars from the blades I used

Sticks and stones may make me cry

but your words made me want to die

Broken bones and bruises heal, the wounds of those words is so much harder to recover from. An excellent poem on an important subject.
