Never Say That Word

By Kevin T. Pearson

It is a small word
With a big bite,
The worst ever heard;
it is just not polite.

If you could hold it,
It would feel like a ton.
Beware not to use it;
it hurts, even in fun.

It never feels nice.
It should never be heard.
Please take my advice
and use another word.

You know how it feels
When someone says it to you.
It takes forever to heal,
Even though it’s not true.

You must not forget.
Never make that mistake.
You will live with regret
if you use the word HATE.
