"A knife cuts your flesh, harsh words cut your heart, but if they don't drive you to your death, they'll fade to just a scar."

I was a rock,
But you ground me up,
You turned me into,
A pile of dust,
I don't know who I am,
Or who I want to be,
So I guess ill just keep being,

Some know me as beautiful,
You know me as a walking ground,
All of your insults,
Flatten me out,
You try to change,
Who I am,
But I'm still me,
Sun up or sun down.

You can build me up,
You can tear me down,
I’ll just lay here,
On the ground,
You will never know,
What your words do to me,
You will never know,
What it takes to be me.

Then at night I go to war,
The tide flattens me,
It tries to wash me in,
But I'm not giving up,
I'm not giving in,
I'm proud if who I am,
Even if I’ll never be anything but,

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this is bullying. As a victim of this horrid act I found a escape from all the pain, writing. This is my first poem and I hope that from this you all learn the power of words and the way the can effect people. Also that its not over after you leave they will live the moments over and over at night.

I'm going to smile and make you think I'm happy, I'm going to laugh, so you don't see me cry, I'm going to let you go in style, and even if it kills me - I'm going to smile.~Anonymous
