Words Don’t Hurt...

Words don’t hurt,

not like a fist!

Not like a kick or a slap.

There’s no power in them

and I’ll say ‘okay’

for those that are deafened to

what others say.

Those so deluded

with a sense of grandeur,

hey, we’re beneath them

of that I am sure.

The narcissist who

dwells in our midst,

won’t be hurt by a single thing

that we say.


but that’s no excuse

for his forked tongue!

We’re not all made with a super-sized,

kevlar protected, kick-ass ego.

Or maybe it’s just that he cannot relate,

as he’s filled with his own

self-justified hate.

No words don’t hurt,

not a bit, not at all,

when you’ve the mind of

a megalomaniac.
