Sticks and stone may break my bones 

But words will break my confidence,

Words will break my trust

Words will linger in my head until who I am becomes who I was 

They say words won’t make me bleed

That words won’t scrape my knees

But words will make me touch rock bottom

Drowning in my tears 

Created seas

I was a child when I first started being bullied 

The words started out small 

Children being children 

They say I wouldn’t remember it after all 

But words are like tattoos permanently engraved on my being

Because words become beliefs 

Once you’re forced to start agreeing
