She's the quiet girl--you know, the one everyone ignores
The one that's silently crying because of it
The one that won't dare open her mouth
The one that can't seem to speak the truth

He's the crazy boy--you know, the one everyone makes fun of
The one that's silently crying because of it
The one that makes a scene just to fit in
The one that does everything to be accepted but still isn't

They're the outcasts--you know, the ones everyone has a strong opinion of; a bad opinion, at that
But what have they ever done?
Nothing? Is that the reason for the abuse?
If they had done something about this, would that girl and would that boy still be here?
Would they not have hurt themselves before others hurt them?
These questions are bubbling in my mind.

This will certify that the above work is completely original.


The author's comments:
It seems that no one ever thinks about the ones that aren't accepted. But just because they aren't, does that mean they don't exist? This poem explains my hopes for the bullying to end.
