 From my mind

Words Don't Hurt


Words they don't hurt you, you hear people say
They can rip out your heart and throw it away.
Words are just words said cruel and unkind
they can scar the soul and damage the mind.

Words are just words they can cut to the bone
when you've got time to think on your own.
Words are just words they can cut very deep
stop you from eating and take away sleep.
Words are just words filled with untruths and lies
causing you to loath, hate and despise.

Words are just words that can cause riots and wars
affecting our lives, mine and yours.
Words are just words that give the command
for death and destruction what ever the land
Words are just words that kill and destroy
hurting innocent people, man, girl, woman and boy.

Words are just words whispered soft and so kind
embracing the heart and soothing the mind.
Words are just words loving and true
these words are special to me and to you.

Words are just words when you're christened over the font
to set  you off on a good life that's what we all want.
Words are just words said over your grave
all about your life and the difference you made.

Words are just words at the end of the day
if they've been written you can throw them away.
Words are just words but I think you will find
that they are imprinted at the back of your mind.

Words don't hurt you hear people say.
