I thought you were a very interesting person,
You had taken an interest in many fun activities.
I thought we had much in common,
But as I tried to talk to you and get to know you better,
On that day in chorus class when we were 7th graders,
You had no desire to get to know me.
So you ignored me and avoided me

Just a year later, you were in my English class
Remember when you were seated next to me?
If you do, you probably don’t think of it too much,
But I do.
You laughed at my clothes and was disgusted with my hair
And you called me names like, “freak,” and “fatass.”

Remember when you were in my math class freshman year?
You stole my iPod and refused to give it back.
Of course, I told the vice principal
No, I didn’t snitch on you
But you bullied me and you needed to realize it.

I don’t think of you as a threat now
But I am glad to finally realized your mistake
So you see me in the hallway, you wave and say, “Hello!”
And I smile and wave

I never had the courage to tell this story through verbal words, so I thought writing it would be easier. This is a true story and I admit that I have been a victim of bullying.
