Have You Thought

Thu, 04/01/2021 - 17:25 -- HailsM

Have you ever thought?

The girl you called fat today in the hallway

She is starving herself 

Even though her ribs show and she can see the bones in her arms 

She starves herself


The guy you pushed down and called names 

Did you know he is already abused at home?

Physically and verbally

He covers the bruises

He is too afraid to say anything 


The couple you saw today and called them worthless

Yeah, the girl cuts and now she's going to try again tonight

The boy is thinking about hanging himself next week 


So next time think before you make fun of the broken or push down the hurting,
