What hurts more?


What hurts more?
What hurts more than someone letting you down? Someone letting you down when they were the one to pick you up when you were low.
What hurts more than being let go? That someone special loves someone else who you know.
What hurts more than getting embarrassed? Getting harassed for being you.
What hurts more than being ashamed? Being named a wimp just because you wouldn't do what they wanted.
What hurts more than being bullied? Being bullied but not believed because you've reported it so many times.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
