Words Are Pointless

The pen, oh the pen, you are mightier than the sword
Words, they say, can never hurt,
I don't think they've ever been betrayed.
Just a few words, just a couple sentences,
That's all it takes to ruin a life.
Being gay doesn't matter.
Being lesbian is okay.
Bi. Transsexual. Fucking straight.
Why is it such an issue?
My life isn't a bed of roses, never has been,
But thanks to you it's got the thorns.
Apologies are acceptable, however you can't say its real if there's a 'but'.
I won't forget.
Words are pointless when actions supposedly speak so much louder.
