Locked WIith A Key

They said he was weird
Kind of
Odd
And spacey
I heard what they said
I listened
False?
True?
Lie.
I opened my imaginary mouth
And out came silent words
Floating through the air
With no affect
I would have said something
If my mouth wasn’t
Locked with a key
Too bad I threw it out

They said she was a dumb
Kind of
Slow
And awkward
I heard what they were saying
I listened
True?
False?
Lie.
I knew that they were wrong
I tried to open my mouth
And say no
But I sealed it with a zipper
And the zipper
Was jammed

Yesterday they did something to that boy
And that girl
After school
In the parking lot
I saw what they were doing
I watched
I put my fists up
And ran
But stopped
Only After one step
I would have said something
I would have stopped them
For doing
What they did
Too bad I pinky swearad
I should have crossed my fingers
Behind my back


Sometimes they say mean things about me
That I’m anti social
Kind of
Timid
And Shy
I heard what they were saying about me
I saw people listening
They all listened
No one said a thing
Not
A
Peep
I waited
And waited
Forever
It seemed like
All of their mouths
Were locked with a key
Too bad they all threw it out

Hi there! I really like the poem and picture. Did you draw it? The poem could be a vocaloid song. I really, really like it!

This is a great poem because it's something we can all relate to at one point or another.
You should check out some of my stuff. I think you would like it.
