I'm fine.

I know I am not beautiful

I know I am not bright

I sleep all day to escape the pain

I hide to escape the light

 

My eyes are small

My frame is wide

You say I'm ugly

And I cry inside

 

It seems my pain

Lifts you high

You smile

You apologize

 

But I know now

That they're broken words

Open wounds

from sharp blade swords

 

I know I am not beautiful

I know I am not bright

I hide away inside myself

Hoping to be alright

The poem is full of deep feelings, and it's deep thus good.

But, don't take personally ANYTHING, especially something about Your looks.

And don't hide. Come out.

I related it more to my experiences of being bullied throughout my life, from when I was little to this very day. I have reached a point in my life where I am more numb to the pain than anything else, but I felt like if people read this they might think twice about bullying someone or saying something careless, it hurts a lot more than people think it does.

Wow.... That was amazing Brianna. The emotions, deep and raw, they were definitely cutting through the air. Your poem really depicted harsh reality. Its the plight of every other person and you put that pain to words. It was truly amazing. Really. All the words simply struck a chord with my heart. Couldn't help but feel the emotion behind it. I just loved it. Keep writing.

It makes me want to punch whoever said you are ugly.

Ah Brianna, after your beautiful comment on my poem, I just HAD to come here, and may I say, I was highly impressed when I did. This was carried off with grace and beauty, and a heavy sense of sadness, EXACTLY what I want to feel after reading a poem of this sort. I am a busy person, but I am highly glad that I came here today to see this masterpiece set out in front of me. Like ^_^

That was such an introspective piece. I was deep but simple and relatable...at least for me. I love how you were able to put so much emotion in few words.

Thank you, I wrote this poem to give people sort of a peek at what they do to others by saying mean and hurtful things. Just my little contribution for anti-bullying.
