"You don't need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!"~ John Lennon


Monday,
they called her
fat, stupid, ugly.
But words are just words,
so they thought.


Looking into a mirror,
she wept.
Fat, stupid, ugly
she thought.
But words are just words,
so they thought.


Tuesday,
they called her
freak, slut, retard.
But words are just words,
so they thought.


Looking into a mirror,
she saw herself.
Fat, stupid, ugly
freak, slut, retard
constantly in her mind.
She cried.
The tears came streaming down.


Wednesday,
they called her
psycho, useless, skank.
But words are just words,
so they thought.


She cried.
Until tears came
no more.


Thursday,
they told her to go die.
But words are just words,
so they thought.


Friday,
they said nothing.
For she wasn't there.
But words are just words,
so they thought.


A picture of her
was shown everywhere.
They soon found out,
they had killed her.
But words are just words,
they questioned.

This has a real powerful message to it. Amazing job! :)

That was a very intense poem. It made me sad, in a good way though, I really enjoyed it! Good job.

Quite thought provoking; makes you really think deeply regarding the power of the words we say and how they really take a toll on people,
