Words flySticks and stones they

Words fly

Sticks and stones they say

But they don't FEEL this

The words merciless WRATH

Running away is NOT an option


TEARS only gives them MORE fuel

TRAPPED in your own mind.


No! you aren't trapped!

You are STRONG and tall

You are beautiful and KIND

You are WORTH it


You can WIN this

What do they matter?

It's only thier opinion

They don't KNOW you!

They can't own YOUR life!


We all have flaws

But that makes us UNIQUE

They are NOT bad

They are POWER


So DON'T give in

Stay STRONG because

YOU are WORTH it
