I was told that sticks and bones break our bones,
but words don't hurt us,
what does that person know?

Because I know that everybody knows a place,
where the sun won't shine,
and the rain keeps coming down,
trapped in the dark,
no one hears our screams. No they don't.

Why do words hurt so much?
why can't we laugh it off like we just don't care? Why not?
If we could we would...

Lock your words,
where the sun don't shine,
and the rain keeps coming down,
'cause maybe in the dark words will die.

Everyday in the mirror now,
we'll be lookin' at ourselves,
you'll wonder "what's wrong with this?"
we should all know that answer...
don't waste your breath...
please shut it.
nothing's wrong.

Everybody knows that place,
where the sun don't shine,
and the rain keeps comin down,
the only thing holdin' us there is us!

Also very true. People always think something is very wrong with their lives when really it is something so small. And they're the only ones who can let it go and move on.

I think we all do know that place and it's not much fun to be. Great writing though. I think that for such a dark poem, you left us all with some encouragement knowing that we have the power within ourselves let go of the mean words that others say to hurt us and keep us down. And it is true that words can hurt much longer than broken bones. A good lesson to watch what we say to one another. Good Job!

I really like the opening line, it pulled  me in (though i do believe it is sticks and stones in case that is a typo:b) I like this because it is relatable to pretty much anyone.  Keep writing!
