that boy you called gay for picking flowers
laid them on his parents graves
the girl you called a whore for sleeping around
was abused since a very young age
that emo kid everyone makes fun of
plans to die tonight
when the boy you push around goes home
everyone's in a fight
the kid you punched the other day
gets hit enough at home
that girl you always tell she's fat
throws up her food when she's alone
the kid everybody tells they're dumb
has been told that all their life
maybe you think it's funny
but to them, it hurts more than their knife
Bullying is wrong. Even on a small level like just saying a couple nasty things hurts. What if everything in this poem is happening to the people you make fun of? Think before you say this stuff because it sinks deep and never really goes away after you tell it to someone. I know from experience.
I just saw this again and actually said "oh shit" out loud because I relate entirely to the last two parts.
Yea those are the best parts in my opinion
I can relate to this. The words bullies throw at me does hurt more than my knife.
They definitely do...and I numb up against my knife after a while, the words always hurt.
I have 55 cuts, and not a single one hurt more than the words.
I don't count mine, but I do know that the words always cut deeper
My brother was like "Oh my gosh! That's A LOT!" When I told him about the 21 on my right leg. 55 is too much more than 21. -.- I wish I could stop as easily as I started.
that is so....beautiful~
oo that last word hurt <3 great poem
everyone should have to read this. it's great!
I've seen something very similar to this already online but it's not a poem =
P That where you got your inspiration? Overall great poem it flows very smoothly i only suggest to maybe add a bi more closure for the last stanza to wrap it all up!
I did not see the thing you are referring to, i actually just came up with it from my past experiences and those that ive seen. Ill try to take your advice on that last stanza though
You made my day sir.
haha well you are welcome...but i happen to be a girl
wow, that really does sink deep. I've been in the shoes of several of these people and it's nice for other people to see it too.
I've been trying and trying to write a poem like this, but I can't seem to get the right words... This is just beautiful ^^ if you don't mind me saying... xD
