"You left the marks of love on me. You gave everyone the impression that you did it. You acted like you cared. You said you loved me. You showed me constantly, night after night, that you loved me. Not only physically but emotionally. You made me happy. I put so much time into making you happy a. I put so much time into making sure you were ok. I care about you so much and I love you so much that I feel like my chest is going explode. So what gave you the fucking right to turn around and push me down. What gave you the fucking right to shut me out and yell at me and kick me down when I’m already kneeling. What gave you the fucking right to just drop me and leave, like a toy you just don’t want to play with anymore. I’m not someone who you can use whenever you feel like it. I have feelings and you just left me there. To rot. My insides are rotting because of you. They ache and tear and burn and sting. I want your love, I need your love. Yet you just left. Left me to fucking burn with no conclusion. So pardon me while I just burst into fucking flames. Maybe it’s my fault. Maybe I didn’t do enough. Maybe I should be sorry. Should I hate myself for not being enough? Should I apologize because I failed? I have so much hurt in my body from you. My heart has a giant hole in it, and it fucking hurts. I don’t know how someone can do this to you. I don’t know how you can care about someone so much that it physically hurts you from the inside. I have so much sadness, so much pain inside me that I don’t know what to do with it all. Just go away.
I just want to go away.”

This is why we respect our elders, and protect our youngers. They are the softest at heart and need care the most.
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “He is not of us who does not have mercy on young children, nor honor the elderly”
Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As: The Prophet said: Those who do not show mercy to our young ones and do not realize the right of our elders are not from us (Sunan Abu Dawud).
“Your Lord has commanded that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your parents. If one or both of them reach old age with you, do not say to them a word of disrespect, or scold them, but say a generous word to them. And act humbly to them in mercy, and say, ‘My Lord, have mercy on them, since they cared for me when I was small.” (17: 23-24)
