She`ll never see.

When your pain can help another person’s problem, what do you call it?
Should you believe it’s true,
or would you say it’s another thing that you just do?
For once in my life, the problem isn’t me.
But I take full responsibility
because she went through it and I didn’t see,
even though she did it to me.
She doesn’t know this but she’s not alone.
She’s not the only one whose face feels unknown.
But she doesn’t know that and she probably never will,
only because that may kill
the little bit that I still feel.

The author's comments:
My name is Dakota, I am 14 years old. A few weeks ago, my mother and I came to find that my sister in law has an eating disorder. But what nobody else knew was that she use to bully me about my eating. I have a very fast metabolism, and once I stop eating...I lose a lot of weight. And it’s hard to gain it back. I am now only 96 pounds. She never knew she affected me. And never will. It just goes to those who bully on what it can do to a person. Even if you don’t see the pain and hurt, doesn’t mean that it isn’t there.
