BATTLE OF WORDS

I think I know why
My friend did what she did
I think it’s the way
We try to get rid

Of the hurt and pain
That the words can cause

But I think we all
Have different ways
Of trying to make

The painful words fade
By giving ourselves permanent scars

Sometimes our scars cannot show
But we know that they are there
It hurts

Why don’t others understand
That every time we look at our scars
They will still bring back the pain
That the words have caused
But not as fresh as they were at first?
Sometimes we got to pray to God

To take the pain and heal our souls
From the words that have stuck us
We even got to thank Him
For letting the littlest pain not build on us
Like a tower that wants to be shot down

As far as you walk
Down the wrong road
You can always
Turn back
