Sticks and Stones

Inside Out

Sticks and stones break your bones

So do daddy’s hands

It’s said that words don’t hurt in life

But do if they are commands

People push and shove in life

Try to get ahead

But sometimes the ones they step on

Need picking up instead

Daddy’s hands do many things

Mommy’s close their eyes

How come the pain doesn’t stop

When your daddy dies

The hurt is deep inside you

Down inside your being

I don’t think it ever goes away

My heart will never sing
