Understanding Pain

December 14, 2008
By Krysten Townsend, Harrison, ME

I wish people knew what it is really like
to lie in bed and scream at night
I wish they knew the real meaning of pain
to be left out in the pouring rain
I wish people would stop looking at me with doubt
they don’t know how it feels to be left out
I wish people understood why each tear is shed
or how my heart is breaking as a lie in bed
I wish I could stop hurting so bad
but people don’t understand the hard life i’ve had
