THE GREATEST PAIN IN LIFE

by:
Author Unknown

The greatest pain in life
is not to die,but to be ignored.
To lose the person you love so much
to another who doesn't care at all.
To have someone you care
so much about throw a party
and not tell you about it.
When your favorite person on earth
neglects to invite you to his graduation.
To have people think that you don't care.

The greatest pain in life is not to die,
but to be forgotten.
To be left in the dust after
another's great achievement.
To never get a call from a friend,
just saying "Hi".
When you show someone
your innermost thoughts
and they laugh in your face.
For friends to always be
too busy to console you
when you need someone
to lift your spirits.
When it seems like the only person
who cares about you, is you.

Life is full of pain,
but does it ever get better?
Will people ever care about each other,
and make time for those who are in need?
Each of us has a part to play
in this great show we call life.
Each of us has a duty to mankind
to tell our friends we love them.
If you do not care about your friends
you will not be punished.
You will simply be ignored, forgotten
As you have done to others.
