"two things are infinate, the universe and human stupidity, and im still not sure about the universe"
albert einstein

A sword can cut your skin,
But words can go deep in.
A man can die by darts,
But words will strike the heart.
A beating can take its toll,
But words can harm the soul.
A war can cause a nation to fall,
But worlds will start it all.
So why do we hurt our friends,
With blade and words with harsh ends.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem after thinking about that old nursery rhyme "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" and that not totally true so here you go
