She enters her class
Takes a seat a little flustered , a little shy
a little uncomfortable with a thick skin
A little uncomfortable by herself
A little awkward and A little too tall
With a hop in her step and a huge smile on her face
All she wanted was a lot of friends
But days after days she was left alone.
Why you may ask but I would never know
When they saw her alone
They came at her like a pack of cougars
Called her fat Told her she deserved to be a loner
That she dint deserve friends
They made sure she Dint get any
They said she was supposed to be hated
That she was made to be disgusted with
They made her suffer
They made her bleak
Crushed and ruined her being
They made her feel like she was weak
Little did they know that only people as strong as her can go through things like these
That it took courage to fake a smile whole day and just let it out at night without a single noise
They told her this when she was a kid
They humiliated her
Told her she can never be enough
Laughed like a pack of wolf for years and. years of her being
Broke every part of her
Sure you may say they dint hurt her
But the scars on bodies stop hurting its the scars on the mind that never do.
So here i sit after years of it.
With tears in my eyes and over the top height.
Still asking the same question again and again
Was it enough?
To steal my childhood
To ruin me in a way that even after years I can’t fix myself
To make my each and everyday of life a battle?
Was it enough?
Will It ever be enough?
This poem is huge but its pretty close to my heart. It killed me to write it and to publish it out to the world. It just wasnt easy. We all know bullying is horrible but we dont know is how many long term effects it can have on a person. Which i’ve tried explaining here.
