Things Hurt

Things Hurt
By: Ireland Dowd

Talk about all the failures of others all you want.
Hope it doesn’t come back to bite you.
I sincerely don’t care about all of the ludicrous you put on yourself.
Not only do I laugh at it, I choose to grow from the fact that you have hurt me.
Get over it! Your damaged notoriety is killing you to the point where you cause others pain. 
Stop and grow up and actually be okay.

Hurting others hurts you more than it hurt them.
Undergoing pain is not an easy thing especially when it keeps building up.
Represent those who need hope, courage, and a friend instead of tearing their wall down and killing them emotionally.
Try to undergo the pain they are going through with them.

Congratulations Ireland, on your honorable place finish in the Jump contest. I enjoyed reading it. Thanks for entering. I found your exploration of what it means to hurt very interesting with good jumps, but in need of more editing.
