Poetry: “Words”

A less pleasant topic for this poem.

***~***~***~***

Words

Angry scratches on the door
Spelling out a word most foul
Meant to hurt and mean to maim
Slice and cut the soul to shreds

Full of hatred was the hand
With such force he did his work
Cutting through both paint and door
So intent to make his mark

So the hate spreads in this world
Hateful words carved into doors
No real reason that I find
Can justify such horrid deeds
