He was nine.Hadnt experienced

He was nine.

Hadnt experienced a thing

Expect for being tortured, harassed

And the horrible things that words can bring


Words hurt

They hurt more than sticks and stones

They inflict so much pain

You can feel it in your bones


He had his whole life ahead of him

He could have been a legend, a star

But what he had gone through,

Didnt let him get that far



I hate bullies.
