To Name a Few – Written Monday 13th December 2010 (Aged 35)

To Name a Few

it is sad that others –
through their own experiences
inflict hurt on others
and it is sad,
that people constantly sabotage lovers
it is sad that there is a lack of trust
and a lack of self esteem
means that people are happy to drown dreams
do people deserve to be hurt
to be treated in a callous and non emphatic ways
and sadly this is not centred around one
it is not even two or three
i could name a few who have left a nasty taste
and something for me to chew
it is sad that others –
through through own experiences
feel it is fine inflict hurt on those –
who only ever cared for who
