BOOOM! BOOOM! BOOOM!
Your words are like hot tipped bullets,
They’re piercing my soft skin,
And once you’ve fired your shiny gun,
You can’t take them back in…
You aren’t thinking straight
They’re pouring out
This is unexpected
from your perfect pout…
The words are harsh,
The words are cold,
The words are mean,
The words are bold…
Stop this battle you’ve started with the world
And keep your thoughts to yourself,
For the grudges you bear are larger than life
And the words that you shout are filled with strife…
This poem is about people that are tactless and can say so many mean things as girls often do without thinking of the consequences that follow. And sometimes words are just as bad as bullets, they can be so hurtful and leave a painful blow that remains with one forever.
It is also inspired by Nelspon Mandela’s quote “Words are like bullets, once they escape you can’t take them back in”.
