The Unexpected

Never would anyone guess it wasn’t me
Everyone was teasing me
The quiet one
Never bothering anyone
I would never stand up for myself
I broke
Tired of it
Cherry colored cheeks were the last straw
Terror stream’s down my face
They cant see the
They have caused for me
I finally fight back
Glares are always present
They will never quit
Many times I have plead them to stop
They call me a crybaby
It makes it all worse
The pecking of the crows will never cease
I see the way you treat other quiet kids
Why will you never stop
The scar is permanent.

my favorite line is the one "the pecking crows will never cease" ... its powerful, sad, but unfortunately a true story for so many people :(
