About a teen making a important decision after being bullied

When the boy was little
he receive a gift
one that wasn't brittle
wrap in paper

Open to find a dagger
simple and short
in hand made him stagger
gave him power

He was confuse
looks at the knife
worn from abuse
what to do?

Kept over the years
put away and safe
comes home with tears
living in fear

That night the voices
talk to him
"you have no more choices"
thousand of noises

Knowing what's to come
he takes the short dagger
tired of being called dumb
your time has begun

Only one thing on mind
as he walks the halls
the students interwind
he has no kind

Holds the short sword high
panic is aroused
screams rise
are there going to die?

The boy looks into their eyes
got what he wanted
quietly sighs
drops the weapon of lies

"Not going to do
cause like this knife
I will always be
sharper than you"
