Hurt Me

Sticks and stones never broke my bones

But the words did hurt me, the words do hurt me

All my life I felt alone

Cuz no one told me, the world's unholy

Your tongue was like a knife's serrated edge

Each word a rusted, jagged point meant to cut me rough

Beyond stitches' remedy

And then I let my own reign free

Adding insult to injury 

Sticks and stones never broke my bones

But the words did hurt me, the words do hurt me

All my life I felt alone

Cuz no one told me, the world's unholy

Ahh... I like this, but I hope it wasn't anything I said that made you think of this poem right now.
