Beautiful Disaster

People Talk

People talk
But they don't know what they say
The harsh feelings associated with their words
Brings up pain for others
Unknown victims
They don't do it to be cruel
Or to cause one to cry
It's “just a joke”
They were “just kidding”
People have become so desensitized
Nothing is a big deal
To many people words have no meaning
But to some
Their words cut deep like knives
Right to the core
Exposing hurt they had bottled
For they know if they speak up
They will not be heard
People will continue to talk
