I stare in awe at the computer screen
Everything goes out of focus
A layer of water coats my eyes,
Frozen in shock and disbelief.

How could they say that?
Do they not know how it feels?
Do they simply not care?
Can’t they tell that it hurts me?

The computer stares back at me
Mocks me.
Tells me that I’m not good enough
Tell me something I don’t know.

Are people really so oblivious
That they feel they can trample on your self esteem,
Tear brutally at your fragile heart,
And have you not even care?

Sometimes I think
People only care about themselves.
They hate me,
They want me to cry.

But when I find myself
Thinking the same things about other people
I take another look
And see that we are all the same

Hurting others is a part of life
And it will be until we all grow up
And realize that you don’t need to make others feel small
To make yourself a giant.

The author's comments:
I wrote this because I recieved a lot of truly awful comments in my Formspring page, which really upset me and got me thinking about why all teenagers feel the juvenile need to make each other miserable.
