What Hurts More? - Poem by Lucy Grainger

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.

    A well articulated piece written with insight. You've just hammered the nail on its head - pinpointing what puts us down and hurts us deeply. A very nice piece indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    A progression from neglect to slander and violence. It sure is painful to see old friends as wanton enemies. (Report) Reply
