I hurt

so they must hurt

I cry

so they must cry

I scream

so they must scream

I feel

so they must feel

They must understand.


I’ve lost

so they will lose

I’ve failed

so they will fail

I’ve pled

so they will plead

I’ve cried

so they will cry.

They will understand.

I’ve struggled

so they now struggle

I’ve fallen

so they now fall

I’ve bled

so they now bleed

I’ve died

so they now die.

They now understand.
