Have You Ever Hurt a Stranger?

Have you ever hurt a stranger,
Knowing all too well you were?
Did it keep you up at night?
Did you stumble, did you stir?

Have you ever ripped away
From a stranger’s clutch their pride?
Did it bother you to know
You wouldn’t see their crying eyes?

Have you ever wanted something,
And decided just to have it?
Did you care if others cared?
Or did you simply choose to grab it?

Have you ever walked along,
Content to know you’re causing pain?
Did you keep your face more stoic,
Or did you twist your face in shame?

Have you ever really cared,
About your actions most unkind?
When you ripped apart a stranger,
Did you ever even mind?
