You ought to know

You ought to know

what it means to be carelessly dismissed

You ought to know

what it feels like to be despised

You ought to know

what makes people so cold and indifferent to you

 

You ought to know

so you might stop

dismissing

despising

coldly ignoring

 

You ought to know

what it’s like to be on the receiving end

of what you dish out

 

so you may grow

some sympathy

some understanding

some emotional intelligence

a conscience

 

You ought to know

since you think you already know all

 

This is something

you ought to know

 

so as to truly know

what your ignorance is doing
