Bullying hurts, don't you see?
You are nothing, but a big bully
Don't you think of what could have been?
What if they put a razor to their skin?

What if they wrote a note to say goodbye?
And their family and friends were left wondering..why?
What if at night, they cry themselves to sleep?
By morning, it's too hard to get up on their feet

They are afraid to come to school because of bullies like you
When they try to tell an adult, their plead is overruled
Soon they can't take it anymore
They think, "What do I have to live for?"

Finally all of their secrets start to spill
They grab the bottle and overdose on pills
All they ever wanted was a friend
And to hear the words, "I'm sorry, I won't do it again"

You did it all for the fun
You didn't know what could've been done
What if you pushed them a bit to far?
All your actions have caused one big scar

Haven't you seen what you put them through?
You think they're weak, but they're stronger than you
All they want to do is forget
They think, "how much worse can it get?"

Don't you know, you're their biggest fear?
They scream so loud, but no one can hear
What if it was you who got hurt everyday?
Tell me how many words you would have left to say

hello! you peice of art was great! i loved the scheme and the rhyming and added here and there. I beleive you can take your poetry to the next level by adding a perspective that no one sees. this was almost a moving yet cliche righting but i still loved how it flowed. Can't wait to read more from you!!
