Watch here:

They called him fat, sloppy, and dull —
an ugly duckling.
The fold around his back, they frequently called sausage rolls
Ugly toad, one of many terrible names,
many bad comments have gone untold.
If he chooses to sleep and refuses to awake
Perhaps, they will stop calling him names;
giving him false titles, troubling his days.
If he refuses to awake, perhaps, 
his wailing will end;
And his bitter days will no longer be on constant replay
If he lives, he’ll feel lost. If he dies, he’ll still lose:
What then will he choose? What then should he choose?

Choose life, my friend
because regardless of what today brings,
better days lie ahead and…
you owe it to yourself to witness bliss.

Some situations are just too ugly,
too ugly… to lose.

About “Too Ugly to Lose”

The poem is a spoken word piece that sheds light on bullying and the circumstances that surround it.

The poet suggests that when someone is met with ugly situations, they shouldn’t back down because there’s a reason for everything and a lesson to be learned.

She also makes one point very clear: just because there are bad days doesn’t mean good days do not lie ahead. And that’s the more reason one should not end their lives– because they owe it to themselves to witness bliss.

Beautiful…and agree, just because of a bad chapter, doesn’t mean the whole book is bad… Journeyofsmiley.com


Wonderful poem, never to give up and hope for better times. Lovely share!

Such a striking message. Let us all choose life, even if the situation is too ugly. It’s never too ugly to not try.


Peer pressure, discrimination and bad treatment in all its forms can cause anyone to give up on life. However, life is a gift and we can choose who our friends are in most cases.


It is very deep and so wroth to discuss, still so valid at the moment unfortunately!

I totally agree that there is a lesson to be learned in every situation which gives us the opportunity to grow.

I love the message to never give up. We all have bad days or periods in life, but if you hang in there, good times usually return.


very nice poem. I really enjoyed reading it today.


It’s true, not every day is going to be bad. Shame there is still so much bullying in the world.

Always an interesting perceptive! Such a great way to deliver a powerful message. We make our own choices.
