Life of an Outcast

"Stop picking on her," they say "How would you like it". They say these things, yet they do it, too. Everyday I
wonder should I skip school today? I know if I skip i'll be in trouble, but if I go i'll be picked on. "tell the teacher"they tell me. So I do, then..."tattle-teller". So what do i do? ;When I tell the teacher the teachers tell me "deal with it, your strong" They just don't under-stand, see, no matter how strong you are, you can only take so much before you crack.
When I crack cry, or yell. When other kids bring tears to my eyes joy from it. By making me cry, they steal from me, do you know what they steal? They steal one moment of joy from my life. " "Stop picking on her," they say "How would you like it". They say these things... do they mean it?

She needs to pay more attention to grammar, spelling and punctuation (us old fogies notice stuff like that), but I know this is from her heart and she did a great job of letting us see that.
