It Hurts

It hurts
When someone tells you you're not pretty.
And it hurts
When someone tells you

You have no friends.
It hurts
When people spread rumors
About what you did with the quarterback.

It hurts
When you're friends deny what
They say about the class-snob,
And then call you a liar, and walk away.
But what hurts people the most

Is that...
People kill other people
Just to show
That killing people is wrong,
And so is having a gun.

What does it help
If you just kill people to show it's bad?
'Cause it hurts.
