"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but my the number of moments that take our breath away."


There's pain deep inside of me
But I deny it's there
I feel as though I shouldn't hurt
Because there's greater pain elsewhere

There are people starving,
Fighting for their life
But I have plenty food,
Never have to dodge a knife

But pain is pain
And that's the truth
Even though I have a home
When some don't have a roof

Nobody should be in pain
Although some are worst than most
Everybody should be healing
And have the right to boast

I feel as though some pains
Are far worse off than mine
But I am hurting too
So that should be a sign

A sign that screams out
'I need some help, too'
Don't just neglect my pain
Because they're far worse off than you


The author's comments:
Pain is pain, and even if some are worse pains, people are still hurting, and no body should say "your pain isn't as strong because you get fed daily" even if it may be true, there are all different kind of pains out there
