Sticks and Stones

Memory Flashback-

a long time ago
little girls jumping rope
children's laughter and giggles
boys appear, making us mope..
water balloons explode
all around
"gross! girls have cooties!"
the chant does sound
but we are quick
to reply
wet and cocky
with smiles so sly....

"sticks and stones may break our bones, but your words will never hurt us!!"

Reality Check-

a young woman
in front of a mirror
staring so blankly
down her cheek runs a tear
his words repeat in her mind
chanting loud and strong
"you worthless slut, you stupid bitch.."
her mind starts to go along..
she presses the blade, into her arm
and revises the silly old song

"sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words are what will kill me.."
