Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me. That's what I believed when I was young But now that's not true at all. True sticks and stones can break my bones But words hurt so much deeper. Wounds inflicted by sticks and stones can be easily understood But wounds done by words are more complex. When you use sticks and stones you know you're causing damage But when using words you don't know if what you're saying really hurts. So really it should be sticks and stoles may break my bones But those wounds heal so much faster.
