"Just because you're having a good day, doesn't mean the world no longer sucks!"

You cut into my skin then say my wounds won’t mend.
I look you in the eye and say I don’t mind.
Your weapon is only your words, my wounds just hurt feelings; they won’t last forever.
You wait for me to cry, to break.
I merely stare at you with a bored expression, showing you I don’t care.
For I know your taunts are just to make you feel better about yourself
You try to hurt others by pointing out what you think are their flaws
But really they just make them who they are.

It took me awhile to have the courage to submit this. I had my English teacher read it and he really liked it so decided to see what other people would think.
