"Ugh" to Understood


It's not exactly how I feel

But a word that I use to deal

Deal with every hardship 

Every tear or sense of frustration

It's a word I use to deal with pain

I'm actually not fond of the word

In the end it was better than throwing a chair

Or saying "I don't care"

Butt I don't like the word

I honestly think it's pretty absurd

It doesn't explain my pain

It doesn't explain anyone's pain


To do so one needs to speak 

Saying one word doesn't usually sum to being understood


I now tell my feelings

Therfore becoming strong enough to jump over the hurdle that held me down

I don't jump over the hurdles alone


I continue to attempt to get my friends over their hurdles


The word "Ugh" is not powerful enough to do so
