My experience with bullying

Never did I think someone elses words would effect me 

But repititon left its mark

Looking in the mirror is a constant reminder of how worthless I am

There's not a day that went by that I didn't shed a tear

If only people realized how much their words could hurt

I wonder if they would still speak them

People say I'm selfish and distant

But why should I care about those who don't care about how I feel

My pain is almost too much for me to endure

Sometimes I feel like I can't take it anymore

How many times have I tried to commit suicide

Enough to where even I've lost count

I thought your peers were suppose to help you grow

To be a support system, people you could lean on

Instead here I am by myself

I've fallen so deep I feel like no one can help

My feelings are real and can't be ignored

It's not a phase nor a temper tantrum

I realize I am not the only one going through this

And at times like these it'd be nice to have a friend

Someone who'd tell me it's gonna be fine

Someone who actually gave a damn about my life
