These very short poems, shows the damage words do to children. The effect remains even long after the person is an adult.
Mom and Dad called her ‘Stupid’ and ‘Ugly.’
When ‘He’ called her the same,
She wanted ‘Him’ more.
Running for ‘approval’ was an old habit
Mom, hit him hard for bad handwritings.
His nose bled.
He was 3.5 years.
Now at 35, when he talks to his girlfriend,
He is scared, he is not ‘Good-Enough’ to be loved.
The teacher said, ‘You are stupid.’
Twenty years later- he worked harder and harder.
He was scared, that his boss might think- he is ‘stupid.’
