Just like sticks and stones

have broken bones,

a single word

can harm a free bird.

That poor soul

is no longer whole,

it has been harmed

and will always be alarmed.

So, don't just say

that they're okay.

They have been hurt

and feel like dirt.

We've all been there,

you're all quite aware

how it made you feel,

but you put on a face of steel.

You hid in fear

that there would be more jeer.

If they saw those tears

that you've hidden all these years.

I feel for you

and this issue

that so many face

such a disgrace.

You're not alone though

there are others out there also.

So, dont worry

and don't be overcome with fury.

We love you

now don't be blue.
