There's not a person in this world who's never been hurt, so this is for everyone.

To Those Who Know the Pain of Sticks and Stones

by reasonsofbeing

A stick and a stone You're left all alone Lying in a rut There's no way home

But look at the stars! They don't seem so far When the stones they throw Were of the moon aglow

The sticks from the trees Ashore, by the seas Growing and living So get off your knees

The weapons they use Create a bruise But at the end of the day It's all a ruse

What they throw seems scary... But no need to be wary The stones of the sky and the sticks of below... Oh, you belong! And the places you'll go!

They may take your throne But in a world full of stones Feel it in your bones You've always been home

But bear it in mind Look closely and you'll find Those with stones? Are a target of their own They too are hit, while struggling to find home
