Surfer's poem: It really hurts?

It hurts when they, laugh at disables; never understand what pain is, are harsh on old people... writes author Mukesh Setia.

It hurts when they
Laugh at disables; never understand what pain is,
Become harsh on old people, and kill them,
Push pregnant ladies, just to enter in elevators before them.

It hurts when they
Take a wrong turn on roads and abuse, those who are right in their path,
Become unfriendly at times when someone's need help,
Do injustice with the word "trust".

It hurts when they
Laugh at communities,
Don't bother about unity-integrity and country.

It really hurts
When respect and courtesy for others is diminishing.

Are we not responsible for making the system awful?
Wakeup and understand the meaning of the world "humanity".
