They're letters right?
The normal A to Z we were taught to read,
Morphed together to express our thoughts, our feelings and emotions.
We were taught apple to keep the doctor away and ball because we needed to play.
But we never knew how much they could hurt, not till that day.
The day it got us confused on what is and what's not,
The day it failed us in the face of a lot,
The day we cried till tears refused to drop,
The day it gave a deep cut.
Oh words!
