Black eyes will hurt
But the pain doesn't stay
A bruised lip may sting
But the discomfort will go away 
 Bruise , you eventually won't be able to feel 
But  Rumors hurt your reputation 
And it a hurt that cannot be healed 


A skinned knee doesn't feel good
But in hour it will past
A broken finger isn't great
But it will heal fast 
But a rumor stings forever
A whisper can do more damage 
Then a warrior with a sword and shield 
And a reputation ruin
Is a reputation killed

I wrote this piece afternoon my mom , who works a as noon aid, watching the kids at rec., at my school. Se asked me if girls in my school ever got into fights because she commit while she seen a few boys get into fights, she'd never seen any girl fight and I told her that girls just start rumor because it was easier.this poem is kinda the way I explain it to her, but poetically ;).
