"nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands" e.e. cummings


I never knew how much
Words could mean
Until I gave into the emotions
That defeated me.
They pushed me around,
And bullied me.
I feared for my life
Before the day
That I realized words
Can empower me.
I sat down at my table,
And I began to write
My words.
With that first assignment done,
I knew my words were
The best part of me.
I had a bully no more,
And through my words
I found
That I can find
Myself.
