Its just a race

The words you use
The slang you say
Its your only way
To feel good at all
Have you seen the pain
Seen the shame?
You make me feel?
Your words do hurt
I remember this now
The day you swore
The words you threw
All the hate
Apologizing now
May be to late
We'll you see.
Bullying
Cause many feelings
None of them good
All bad
I feel like I’m
Dead
Lost
Alone
Isolated
Destroyed
Cant go on
No will left
No reason to be
These words they kill
Not just me
They hurt us all
All those like me
Those of my race
Those who keep up pace
With all these words
They watch
They see
They ignore like you
MY pleas for help
My cry for help
It seems to me
I should give up on help
It hasn't come yet
It never will now
It seems somehow
I’m not good enough
For you
For them
For anyone at all
The words come at me
Like a brick
Falling down
From the sky
Way up high
Hitting my head so hard
I fall down now
I cry my cries
I make new lies.
I try to run I try to hide
You hunt me down
For satisfaction
For the fun of the game
Like you seek fame
When you Abuse
Verbally Physically Mentally
Send me in to the valley
Of isolation
The pit of despair
I lost all will
I have now lost all hope
To find new ways to cope
I lost my will
I just lay still
The words wont stop
You use me like a mop.
Your just make me clean your mess
You hope for the best
I don’t want to retaliate
Does this seem like your fate?
The eyes still burn in my sight
When it’s late at night
The words still make a mark
When the rooms so dark
I feel all the pain
Close to being slain
You are a a bully
Who’s only satisfaction
Is to get out of me
A Depressing reaction
I wont let you win
I wont fall down
I’m stronger now
More then ever before
This I am very sure
My strength will increase
With every demon released
From you as you see
How strong I can be
Your words will have no effect
And before you find you next
You think before
About whats in the core
You’ll unleash a strength
After your words are said.
Although they weigh more then lead
Minds will over come
Making those words seem so dumb
It’s time to give up your ways
Find something good to say
It no longer hurts
Don’t change you target
These words have failed on you
You lose now for good
These people agree with me
They laugh as you try to win
They disagree
Being a Bully
By racial harassment
Is never gonna work
So. Bully it’s time
To give up
Walk away
And keep you words to yourself

Wow this was awesome. The emotion, detail, word choice, descriptions, etc we're really good. I can relate to this poem cause I've been bullied cause one I stutter and etc. this was really good. Only suggestion is maybe format and you kind of capitalized.My in one of you're lines other than that this was really good

Thanks. I hate being bullied and I stand up for anyone being bullied. I always spell the word "My" with capitals on accident xD
