- What Matters
Its funny looking back at things,
As the time has quickly flew by,
Remembering all the things that have happened,
It makes me wonder â€˜why?’
Why didn’t I act more confident?
Or make more effort to smile,
Why didn’t I stand up for myself?
When the boys were acting so vile
When the â€˜popular girls’ would call me names
And made me feel unpretty,
When the boys would call me an â€˜ugly leper’
Because they thought they were being witty.
So what if I have eczema?
Yes, I do have ginger hair,
But I’m still a person like everyone else,
Did you think I didn’t care?
Or did that make it even better?
To know you were making life hell,
For me school was an awful time,
And you knew I was too weak to tell.
But then entered my family and friends,
Who were always on my side,
To help me fight my battles,
When I wanted to run and hide.
Things could have gotten a whole lot worse,
If I didn’t have everyone there,
Cheering me up with jokes and laughter,
When I thought life was unfair.
In a way I’ll always think to myself,
I’m relieved school didn’t last longer,
But everything that happened was for a reason,
So thank you, you made me stronger.
