Words from a stranger are useless and forgotten.
They shouldn't hurt, if that person is not in your heart
The war cries don't scare me!
I can fight off the enemy.
Ill survive a gun to my head.
Like a tree can't live without roots,
you can't live without them too.
The ones in your heart carry guns in their mouths
and every negative word destroys your heart from inside out.
They are the ones that drop bombs on your head,
Shredding your leaves
And filling you up with nonsense words
that downgrade your self- esteem
until you feel
Your heart is the source of your hurt.
