Hurt Feelings Poem

Hurt Feelings Never Show by Godwin Delali Adadzie

I hope my hurt feelings never show when I wake up in the morning,
I hope my hurt feelings never show when I pick a bus for work,
I hope my hurt feelings never show when I get to the market,
I hope my hurt feelings never show when I speak with my parent,
I hope my hurt feelings never show when I walk around the neighborhood,
I hope my hurt feelings never show when I lay down to rest.
