"Nobody like you "he saids
I 'm in math class
And I trying read board, I ask the boy sitting next to me scoot over
And that what he retorts

"Nobody likes you," he repeats
And begin think
Of how those words use to echo in my head
And tear my heart shreds
Nobody likes you 
Used to make me cry in bed

In past,
Those words used to control all what did
And my self view 
That phrase used make cry and feel blue
They made me feel sad
They made go mad
I used justify suicide
For , why bother living
If words "nobody likes you " 
are true

But then I decide
To change word view
To realize that the phrase isn't true
Once decide this, I open up oppurnities to make new friends
Now, I feel love living again

"Nobody likes you"
He say the phrase again 
I turn to him 
Yell " shut up"
And grin

For I those words aren't true


The author's comments:
I wrote this piece at school after a boy in math class said "nobody like you" when told him to scoot over.
Later, when I was retelling the event to a friend, it hit how, if that would happen a year ago, I would probably cried, but now, I just laughed at him. I realized that the phrase, "nobody likes you" went from being the most powerful phrase you could to me and a summary of my self-view,to being a joke.

So, the lesson of this poem is that bullying end with you. Yes, it end with you standing up from someone else and it end with you telling the authorities. But , mostly , bullying end when the victim decides not to accept what the bullies are saying. It ends when the victim decide that they don't deserved to be bullying and that the bullies are liars. Once you decide the bullies can't hurt you, they can't hurt you and they'll stop.once you decide that your worth some one's friendship, people will want to be friends without.. So decide that you are worth it- and people will treat you that way
