"Sticks and stones may break my bones", but words have more power than the biggest army.
With each break, bones heal stronger,
but internal wounds never will.
Although they try.
Just before they are mended,
the words that formed these wounds begin to haunt your every thought as though your head were a cemetery.
They begin to tear apart all the progress of healing until you are left with an even worse wound,
bigger and more painful than before.
See bones will heal, but words,
They never do.
They never go away,
never stop hurting.
They never cease to destroy.
Words have more power than the biggest army.
