Bullied

Posted: 8/28/2015

Stop picking on me, please, just leave me alone;

I’ve done nothing to you, I’m just trying to go home.

You might think it’s funny, the kind of clothes I wear,

But I don’t understand why you would even care.

So what if I wear thick glasses because I need help to see,

Because I see clearly you’re someone I hope I’ll never be.

Every time you call me ‘stupid,’ that really hurts me too,

Trust me, you would feel the same if it was said to you.

I might be small and might be weak but that is no excuse,

My body size is something that I just did not choose.

I know I like to spend recess escaping into my books;

It’s unfair that when I try to smile you give me dirty looks.

The bruises on my arm you gave still are black and blue,

I really wish you could see yourself through my point-of-view.

School is a place that I should be able to learn and have fun,

But you took that joy away from me and now I’m left with none.

I don’t have many friends and I feel I don’t fit in,

My whole life I’ve fought a losing battle and for once I’d like to win.

My home life is very hard, and my parents fight each day,

They tell me they don’t love me and they wished I’d go away.

I have nobody I can talk to, and it makes me cry at night,

I hoped school could pull me out of my darkness and finally show me light.

So please, I beg you, leave me be, I feel fragile and distraught,

Because you don’t know a thing about the battles that I’ve fought.
