Words that Hurt
Chase, Age 12, Dunlap, IL
Seeing someone over there with fear in his eyes
He looks scared, trying to avoid
who will not stop.
Who keeps going, doing what he wants, never stops
shouting hurtful words and making fun.
He will not stop
Iím sad for the kid who gets hurt with those words
Words that hurt, words that burn
I want to help
How do I help this person in need of relief, need of me?
Do I take a chance, take a glance?
I stand up.
