Sorrow

By ..*Chelsea*.. H.
Grade 7, Connecticut

What do we do with sorrow?
Do we hurt ourselves to escape it?
Do we hurt someone else to make them feel our pain?

What do we do with sorrow?
Do we seek help from a friend; a shoulder to cry on?
Do we break down and sob on our pillow?

What do we do with sorrow?
Do we remember others who are worse off than us?
But we know how much better it could be.
