Words can never hurt me

That is true, physically at least

Words don’t cut or stab

Beat or flay

Words can’t hurt the body

But they can hurt the mind

Bring out fear or sadness

Scar the soul

More so, words can provoke

Bring to the fore the inner darkness

Ignite rage, promote cruelty

Words can never harm me

But who is to say that they won’t make me harm you?
