This is true. I can relate to this piece.

Very true of how the world views people that are different.

While I do wish you wouldn't have separated the sentence insults from the one-liners, I do love the rhyme/phrase used. It has so much truth. I do think working with different "fonts" would help give this piece more life. Like have the insults be scratchy and sharp like knives to show what sort of pain they can bring, what kind of weapon they can be. You know what I'm saying?

I separated them as a mental organization thing, because I'm weird like that. Yeah, multiple fonts would have made this piece more impactful, it's true. The only problem being that I have 2 fonts available for my handwriting. The ugly one above and strict cursive. I'll work on expanding my handwriting.

I've been called almost ALL those things, but I use it as something to laugh at since I no longer can't bother letting the words hurt me. "Oh, she called me a cutter/emo/anorexic - that's funny"

Yeah, that's how I learned to deal with it too, because if you don't give them the reaction they want, at some point they'll stop

Well, it tends to not be as terrible when you're older, people grow up, and mature..so it gets better, but yeah, the harsh-ness is still there

Well, everyone has to grow up at some point, or they won't survive the world we live in, some grow up later than others, but all will change, if only a little bit, at some point in their life.

Ah...bruises and cuts can heal over, but wounds inflicted by words hurt for a long time...

Well done.

Very true indeed. Wounds of the heart and soul take time and love to heal, whereas wounds of the body take only time.
