Thinking about the people who may have it worse

 

Seen off high 

Let down and forgotten

Times trying

One way or the other

nothing so appealing

So many gain

From so much hurt

So much pain

No one remembers a first

But there was some one

Who experienced the same feelings

and someone else who knows 

A life less lusted for

Filthy at birth

Made to hurt 

Claiming themselves a victim

When someone else sees them a bully

Sitting in the hospital

With a broken leg in a cast

Scarred and tormented 

metal on entire left side of the body

And Across the way sits a man without arms
