Sticks and Stones

EER_0194 (2)

Sticks and Stones will break my bones
But names will never hurt me
Sticks and Stones will break my bones
And words will hurt me even more
Bones heal
Remembered from time to time
Words leave scars on the soul
Indelible marks
Never erased
Perhaps forgiven

Be careful what you say…

  1. Roth, I love this poem. It reminded me of a poem I once read” It may seam a trifle at most the things we do and say but we some times find at fearful cost we may wish them undone one day” however I am not sure who wrote it? You are a beautiful writer. -Bob

    • Thank you Bob. I appreciate your kind words, and your quote is spot on!! It is hard in the heat of the moment to control our tongue! Somehow we always feel me must defend our self at our on detriment.
