" You Only Live Once "

When a doctor walks into a hospital room;
and tells a fighting cancer patient that their time is coming to an end,
do you think that person gives up?
do you think that person listens to the doctor and loses their will to live?
Why is it that we listen to the people around us who put us down;
who make us feel bad about ourselves,
and find pleasure in our pain.
Don't give the enemy their satisfaction,
don't let their words destroy you.
You can be stronger then them, and you are better than them
next time a person bullies you,
or puts you down,
always remember that you are stronger
and keep your head held high.
You may not be perfect, but at least your true to yourself.

The author's comments:
Never listen to someone who puts you down, just remember you are better, and stronger.

You've made some great, good points, Summerstar, as has the writer of this essay, but it's far easier said than done to not let words hurt. Thanks for your input.

Two sayings come to mind: "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me." and "Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will break my heart." Words can hurt, but don't let them, Well done Courtney_Green, keep writing.
