I threw out a comment using all my force
The words they all traveled along their own course

Betty told Bobby then Rachel told Sue
Somewhere along the way, word got back to you

Because I was mad I wanted you to hurt
I was an idiot I dug up some dirt

Now as I sit the back of my head goes bang
I've been knocked out by my word boomerang

So in the end if there's nothing good to say
Keep it to yourself it's much safer that way

    Sometimes anger gets the best of us. I remember when I was really little I had the worst little temper tantrums (people HATED having to babysit me). It's strange how I end up being kinda timid. But anyway... like Becca said it's a great lesson and you've worded it just right. Word Boomerangs aren't fun!

    It's interesting how your writing is so bold and you say it doesn't translate to your day to day life.
