I am human too

The truth behind the bullied.

They call me ‘freak’ they call me ‘weird’

For being myself not a clone

They call me hurtful names

They shun me

And mock me

But they forget

I have a nose

Two eyes

One mouth

Two arms

Two legs

But they forget

I feel the just like they do

In the privacy of my room I break down and cry

As their sharp words

Taunt me

I won’t ever let them see the weakness

I will put on my mask

I won’t ever let them see the damage

Each time I put on a new mask

To hide cracks beneath

Each time they taunt and shun me

A little more of me falls to pieces

But they forget

I am human too

They forget

I am human too

I stand at the edge ready to fall

Ready to die

Sometimes I believe them

As I struggle at the centre of their spiteful games

And I forget too

I forget

I am human too

Very well done! Being bullied sooo sucks! I used to be bullied when I was younger so I know how much it hurts...but then again, I've also been on the bullying side of it too. I liked it a lot. Keep up the good work and keep me informed on anything new, ne?

thats sad! but true for me a few years back before i started to fight back, their scared of me now =D. i hope thats not how you feel because if you do i want to talk to you about it, i don't think any one should feel that way. horrable monsters called cheerleaders, cheer and leaders do not describe them =) hope you feel better!

I used to feel that way but then I decided I didn't want to feel that way anymore so I fought back and well it's alright now so I don't feel that way anymore!

That was really well written and emotional. I loved the way you repeated the lines to put emphasis on them. It was just a really sad poem. Nice job.
